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

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Cichlidae (Cichlids) > Cichlinae
Etymology: Crenicichla: Latin, crenulatus = cut, clipped + Greek, kichle = wrasse (Ref. 45335);  anamiri: The specific name anamiri is a noun in apposition, referring, in tupi-guarani, to the word 'Anãmiri', meaning 'dwarf', in allusion to the small size of the new species.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

South America: Middle rio Xingu and rio Bacajá, upstream of Volta Grande do Xingu in Brazil.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 4.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 104708)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 18 - 21; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-11; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7 - 10; Vertebrae: 30 - 32. Crenicichla anamiri is distinguished from all congeners except C. notophthalmus, C. regani, C. urosema, and C. virgatula by having serrations on supracleithrum (vs. absence). It differs from from C. notophthalmus and C. regani by having a black vertical elliptic blotch centrally positioned at caudal-fin base (vs. presence of ocellated blotch dorsally on caudal-fin base). It can be separated from C. regani, C. urosema and C. virgatula by having two to four rows of teeth in both jaws (vs. more than four rows); from C. virgatula and C. urosema also by the presence of vertical bars on the caudal fin (vs. absence) (Ref. 104708).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected close to the shore or on sandy beaches next to roots of the riparian vegetation during dry season (Ref. 104708).

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=0.00525 (0.00234 - 0.01177), 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):  3.1   ±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) .
