Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Vertebrae: 40. Diagnosed from all other species of the genus Pimelodus, except Pimelodus halisodous, Pimelodus jivaro, Pimelodus ornatus, Pimelodus pictus, and Pimelodus stewarti, by its supraoccipital process with a dorsal median crest; posterior nostril closer to anterior orbital border (vs. posterior nostril closer to anterior nostril than to anterior orbital border); distal portion of dorsal-fin rays 2-4 with a dark spot; caudal- fin base with two dark blotches. Distinguished from Pimelodus jivaro by having a shorter maxillary barbel, extending only slightly past caudal-fin base (vs. maxillary barbel extending beyond caudal-fin base); distal portion of dorsal-fin rays 2-4 with a dark spot, and caudal-fin base with two dark blotches. Differs from Pimelodus ornatus and Pimelodus pictus by the uniform grayish to yellowish coloration (vs. presence of bands or dark dots along flanks, respectively); from Pimelodus stewarti by its shorter posterior cleithral process (10.2-12.4 vs. 12.7-15.6 % of SL); caudal-fin base two dark blotches; and supraoccipital process with dorsal median crest; from Pimelodus halisodous by its shorter pectoral-spine (15.5-18.5 vs. 20.0-23.5% of SL); shorter snout (35.8-41.8 vs. 43.1-47.9% of HL); and fewer premaxillary tooth rows (5-9 vs. 13-16) (Ref. 79502).

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=0.00537 (0.00261 - 0.01106), b=3.11 (2.94 - 3.28), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 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) .
