Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cyprinodontiformes (Rivulines, killifishes and live bearers) > Goodeidae (Splitfins) > Goodeinae
Etymology: Allotoca: Greek, allos = other + Greek, tokos = birth (Ref. 45335). The transliterated Latin terminal part of the compound name ('tocus') was changed to 'toca', thus the genus is feminine (Ref. 35111);  goslinei: Named for William A. Gosline, for his work on cyprinodontoid fishes.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal; pH range: 7.0 - 7.6; dH range: 5 - 20; depth range 0 - 1 m (Ref. 58357).   Tropical; 24°C - 28°C (Ref. 12468)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A small, cone-toothed goodeid characterized with the following: divided preorbital and preopercular sensory canals and trophotaeniae in an elongated rosette; presence of pores 2b-4a in the supraorbital canal system; 12-18 narrow vertical bars along midside; 35-38 vertebrae; compared with A. dugesi more anal-fin rays, modally 14 (vs. 11 or 12 and more diploid chromosomes, 2N = 48 telocentrics and subtelocentrics (vs. 2N = 26 including 22 metacentrics); compared with A. maculata, more dorsal-fin rays, modally 16 (vs. 13 or 14) and in having mandibular pores 4 (vs. 0); compared with A. diazi, A. catarinae and A. meeki, it has fewer preopercular pores modally 8 (vs. 10 or 11), fewer preorbital pores modally 4 (vs. 5), absence of metacentric chromosomes, and a dark band on the male caudal fin (Ref. 58357)., more dorsal

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs mainly in shallow water (15-26 cm) underneath floating plants (water hyacinth, filamentous algae and a nasturtium-like plant) along the gradually sloping north side of the pool. Collected from quiet pool of clear to murky water, with substrate of sand, silt, rocks and boulders (Ref. 58357).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [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):  2.1   ±0.1 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
