Etymology: Hemibagrus: Greek, hemi = the half + Mozarabic, bagre, Greek, pagros = a fish, Dentex sp. (Ref. 45335);  semotus: From the Latin adjective 'semotus', meaning pushed aside, in reference to the relatively large distance between the dorsal and adipose fins.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal.   Tropical

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal soft rays: 12 - 13; Vertebrae: 43 - 44. Differs from Hemibagrus baramensis in having a greater dorsal to adipose distance (8.2-10.2% SL vs. 4.7-8.6), an anal fi n with a straight distal margin, imparting a more rhomboidal appearance (vs. with a convex distal margin, imparting a more rounded appearance) and the upper lobe of the caudal fin regularly tapering (vs. rounded posteriorly); from H. sabanus in having a smaller adipose fin located further away from the dorsal fin (length of adipose-fin base 19.3-3.5% SL vs. 8.9-34.3; dorsal to adipose distance 8.2-10.6% SL vs. 1.2-4.4), a deeper caudal peduncle (depth 9.6-11.3% SL vs. 7.2-9.4), and a shorter outer mandibular barbel (81.9-120.1% HL vs. 127.5-162.1) (Ref. 93057).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits slow-flowing streams with turbid water and a substrate of mud and gravel at elevation. Feeds mainly on arthropods (Ref. 93057).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00450 - 0.02223), b=3.00 (2.82 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
