Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cyprinodontiformes (Rivulines, killifishes and live bearers) > Rivulidae (Rivulines)
Etymology: Cynolebias: Greek, kyon = dog + Greek, odous = teeth + Greek, lebias = a kind of small fish (Ref. 45335);  oticus: From the Greek adjective oticus, meaning relative to ear, in reference to the continuous otic and post-otic series of neuromasts, which is diagnostic for this species.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 97357); 7.1 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-18; Anal soft rays: 18 - 21; Vertebrae: 35 - 36. Cynolebias oticus can be diagnosed from all species of the C. perforatus group by having the otic and post-otic series of neuromasts often united, in close proximity when not united (vs. separated by interspace) and dorsal profile of the head always concave (vs. not concave at least in larger males above 7 cm SL (Ref. 97357).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in temporary pools of the Verde river drainage, near the village of Pindaí. The region has been highly deforested in recent years, resulting to the extinction of some seasonal killifishes (Cynolebias gilbertoi, C. leptocephalus, Hypsolebias fulminantis) previously inhabiting the area. C. oticus can still be easily found in the area even under such condition (Ref. 97357).

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=0.00891 (0.00397 - 0.01999), b=3.14 (2.94 - 3.34), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 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 (10 of 100) .
