Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 10 - 11. Previously considered a synonym of Tetraodon cambodgiensis but can be distinguished by the absence of small spinules or prickles on caudal peduncle and having broader head with head width at the preorbital, post orbital and nape of 54.1-59.8, 69.1-79.7 and 76.5-86.8 %HL, respectively (vs. 48.7-52.9, 60.2-67.6 and 68.5-75.0 %HL, respectively, in T. cambodgiensis) (Ref. 95519).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in the Mekong mainstream as well as in its large tributaries, especially in areas with rocky, sandy or muddy substrates. Often syntopic with Tetraodon suvattii and T. baileyi (Ref. 95519).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02692 (0.01222 - 0.05929), b=2.88 (2.70 - 3.06), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
