Etymology: Hemigrammus: Greek, hemi = half + Greek, gramma = letter, signal (Ref. 45335);  durbinae: Named for Marion Durbin Ellis (née Marion Lee Durbin) (born 1887, deceased apparently in 1972), Carl Eigenmann´s student and latter a limnologist and environmental toxicologist working at the University of Missouri in Columbia, who devoted herself diligently into the most comprehensive study on Hemigrammus so far. A genitive noun.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal soft rays: 20 - 25; Vertebrae: 32 - 34. Hemigrammus durbinae can be diagnosed from most congeners, except H. marginatus, by lacking a conspicuous humeral spot and by having two dark patches of pigmentation on caudal-fin lobes. It differs from H. marginatus by having two conspicuous patches of dark pigmentation occupying most of the caudal-fin lobes, except the tips, which are hyaline (vs. relatively faint dark pigmentation along caudal-fin distal portion, tips of caudal fin dark) and by having two dark narrow stripes along anal-fin base, the first sub-parallel to anal-fin base, extending approximately along region where hypaxial musculature and the muscles of anal fin meet, and the second along anal-fin base (vs. only an inconspicuous dark stripe along anal-fin base present). Other characters useful to differentiate it from H. marginatus include the following: 5-8 pored lateral line scales (vs. 8-14); upper jaw length 32.1-41.6% in head length (vs. 42.3-46.0%); length of dorsal-fin base 9.9-13.1% of SL (vs.13.6-15.1% of SL); length of dorsal-fin length 22.7-27.1% of SL (vs. 27.6-32.6% of SL); and distance from eye to dorsal-fin origin 38.7-45.9% of SL (vs. 34.6-37.8% of SL) (Ref. 101340).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in large floodplain lakes. Stomach contents were composed mainly of terrestrial insects (Ref. 101340).
