Morphology | Morphometrics
Vertebrae: 25 - 27. Pseudolaguvia jiyaensis can be diagnosed from all congeners by having the thoracic adhesive apparatus almost reaching the pelvic-fin origin, and 25-27 vertebrae (vs. 28-34; except in P. tenebricosa and P. tuberculata). It further differs from P. nubila, P. inornata, P. muricata, P. ferula, P. flavida, P. viriosa, P. virgulata, P. lapillicola, and P. assula by having a shorter dorsal-fin spine (11.9-15.0% SL vs. 15.7-29.0) and in addition to P. assula and P. foveolata (but not P. nubila and P. lapillicola) by having a shorter pectoral-fin spine (16.6-19.8% SL vs. 20.2-35.7); and from P. muricata, P. virgulata, P. viriosa, P. austrina, and P. assula by having a shorter pectoral fin (22.6-26.0% SL vs. 26.4-38.1) (Ref. 98400).
Found in stream with clear, moderately flowing water. Occurs syntopically with Pseudolaguvia magna. Both Pseudolaguvia jiyaensis and Pseudolaguvia magna were collected along with species of Psilorhynchus, Barilius, and Danio from the same collection locality in a microhabitat consisting of small to medium-sized stones, pebbles, cobbles with light green algae, and deposits of sand particles near banks (Ref. 98400).
