Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from other species of Hemirahamphodon in having the following characters: dorsal fi n with melanophores in two sizes on both male and female examples above 30 mm SL, interradial membranes on the anterior half of the dorsal fin with large and intense melanophores throughout fi n depth, appearing as thin black streaks. 2) Unique dorsal fi n morphology on large males above 50 mm SL - distal portions of fi rst 6 to 7 rays elongated, free of interradial membrane, projected into fi laments up to four times the depth of the dorsal fi n; adpressed fi n rays reaching half of caudal-fin. 3). Males with an enlarged posterior projection on the fourth anal-fi n ray, with third, fourth and eighth anal-fin rays branched; females with third, fourth and eighth anal-fi n rays branched; pelvic-fin origin anterior to dorsal-fi n origin. 5) Dorsal-fin rays 13 to 14 (Ref. 94086).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species inhabits streams of lowland forest and peat swamps. In streams with clear water, the body is lighter in color while in tannin stained waters, the body tends to be darker colored, at times appearing black (Ref. 94086).
