Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 30 - 32. Brevibora exilis differs from B. cheeya and B. dorsiocellata by having the following diagnostic characters: 10 scales around caudal peduncle (vs. 12); anterior outline of the dorsal-fin blotch ranging from 2nd branched ray to first four or five branched rays with transparent inter-radial membrane between 1st and 2nd unbranched rays (vs. blotch reaching from 1st unbranched ray and inter-radial membrane between 1st and 2nd unbranched rays not hyaline); and shallow body depth (19.3-24.7% SL vs. 24.4-26.7 in B. cheeya; 25.8-28.4 in B. dorsiocellata). It can be further diagnosed from B. cheeya by having incomplete lateral line with 6-10 perforated scales (vs. 25-30), shorter head length (23.7-26.7% SL vs. 28.5-30.0), shallower caudal peduncle depth (10.4-11.9% SL vs. 11.7-13.0), shorter prepectoral length (25.9-27.3% SL vs. 29.6-29.3) and shorter dorsal fin length (22.0-24.6 % SL vs. 26.2-29.3). It can be further separated from B. dorsiocellata by the possession of 28-31 scales along the lateral line row (vs. 25-27) (Ref. 95539).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in black water habitats of Sebangau and Kahayan basins. Occurs syntopically with Brevibora cheeya in the Rungan system, a major branch of the Kahayan basin (Ref. 95539).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00832 (0.00363 - 0.01908), b=3.09 (2.88 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
