Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 38 - 44. The only member of the subfamily Anostominae with a single longitudinal stripe. It also lacks transverse bars across the dorsum. Resembles P. gracilis but is distinguished by the following characters: a dark horizontal stripe along the lower half of the lateral-line scale row and the upper half of the row adjoining; four branchiostegal rays; two pores on the sensory canal of the nasal bone between its anterior and posterior openings; four pores associated with the sensory canal of infraorbital one and arranged in an approximate square; nearly complete closure of the metapterygoid/quadrate fenestra; absence of a posterior process of the ectopterygoid running ventral to the palatine in lateral view; presence of a dorsal process of the mesopterygoid that wraps around the posterior of the palatine; and a palatine with a high arch and thick, blocklike morphology (Ref. 55429).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found in deep and clearwater pool (Ref. 55429). Stomach contents contain sand, woody debris and a fibrous plant material (Ref. 55429). Distinct pairs breed on densely grown weedy places (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00552 - 0.02279), b=3.06 (2.89 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.5   ±0.3 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
