Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-14; Anal soft rays: 8. Differs from other beardless congeners by the unique combination of the following characters: scales on the lateral line 48?50; scales between dorsal-fin origin and lateral line 5 ? 6, and between pelvic-fin origin and lateral line 3 ? 4; scales around caudal peduncle 12-14; barbels absent, but a pair of rudimentary rostral barbels present in small individuals; dorsal fin with 81/2 ? 91/2 branched rays; caudal peduncle relatively stouter; length between snout tip to posterior margin of eye longer than body depth at anal fin origin; head length longer than body depth at dorsal fin origin; prepelvic length 50.0% ? 53.7% of standard length; pre-anus length 58.9% ? 63.9% of standard length; body width 16.7% ? 19.6% of standard length; body depth at dorsal fin 19.2% ? 22.6% of standard length (Ref. 81998).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in shallow areas of river along the bank of the main course and tributaries (Ref. 81998). The river has slightly turbid black water and substrate consisted of large boulders, cobbles, gravel and sand (Ref. 81998).

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=0.00692 (0.00303 - 0.01580), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
