Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 11 - 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal spines: 11-13; Anal soft rays: 8 - 11. Distinguished by having the following characters: dorsal fin with 11-13 spines and 6-7 segmented rays; anal fin with 11-13 spines and 8-11 segmented rays. Differs from other congeners by rhombic shape of caudal fin in adult males (vs. round or lanceolate with filaments) (Ref. 93137).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in blackwater swamp area with pH 5.25, conductivity 7 µS/cm, and water temperature 26.8 °C (Ref. 93137).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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) .
