Etymology: Nothobranchius: Greek, nothos = false + Greek, brangchia = gill (Ref. 45335);  sagittae: The species name sagittae comes from the Latin sagittae meaning arrow; in reference to the relatively pointed head and slender shape (Ref. 98818).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-17; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 15 - 18. Diagnosis: Nothobranchius sagittae is distinguished from all other members of the Nothobranchius neumanni species group by the following combination of characters: in the male, a relatively elongate body shape, a dorsal profile that is slightly convex, a concave transition between the head and body, a pointed snout, and an upward-directed mouth cleft; the anal fin in the male is red with one or two pale yellow, white or blue-white horizontal bands, a light blue-gray proximal part, and a distinct dark red margin; the caudal fin in the male is usually completely red with a relatively dark marginal band (Ref. 98818).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in shallow, seasonal pools and swamps (Ref. 98818).
