Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Cichlidae (Cichlids) > Cichlasomatinae
Etymology: Bujurquina: A name created by Kullander, taken from a native Peruvian word for these cichlids, "bujurqui" or "bufurque"; 1983-1986;  pardus: From the Ancient Greek pardos, meaning leopard, in allusion to the pattern of dark blackish/brown flank spots. A noun in apposition.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13 - 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8. Bujurquina pardus is distinguished from all other congeners by having small, square or tapered black spots ('pardus type') in the region of overlap between the scale base and the anterior overlaying scale's margin. It differs from all other Bujurquina species (B. huallagae, B. moriorum, B. peregrinabunda, and B. ortegai) by the presence of white hyaline margins on the dorsal-fin lappets. It can be distinguished from all congeners except B. eurhinus, B. robusta, B. labiosa, B. huallagae, and B. oenolaemus by having a short pectoral fins (<32% of SL). It further differs from B. oenolaemus, B. cordemadi, B. tambopatae, B. eurhinus, B. labiosa, B. robusta, B. apoparuana, B. hophrys, B. megalospilus, B. ortegai, B. mariae, and B. zamorensis by the presence of light spotting on the spinous dorsal fin. It can be diagnosed from a very similar species B. huallagae, on the basis of the presence of white dorsal-fin lappet margins (rather than black), a strongly curved suborbital stripe (rather than straight or nearly straight), a complete bar 7 (rather than divided), and in having faint buccal stripes (rather than dark buccal spots) (Ref. 96081).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a whitewater habitat of Rio Danta with a substrate of sand and silt, a relatively fast current, little aquatic vegetation and primary forest on the riverbanks. Collected with 4 m seines from the middle of the current at a depth of 1.2 m (Ref. 96081).

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=0.01950 (0.00873 - 0.04354), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), 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):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
