Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 98 - 108; Vertebrae: 62 - 65. Snout with a steep ventral profile (ventral angle of snout 20°-26°), relatively more anal-fin rays (98-108), and smaller eyes (eye diameter 10.7% - 14.0% HL) that are set further apart (interorbital distance 35.4 - 40.9% HL). Mature males have membranous extensions on only the anterior edge of the maxillary barbel.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

In Kapuas Lakes area in Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia, fishermen reported that this species inhabits rivers and major streams with moderate to fast current (Ref. 56749). Appears to be predatory in nature, feeding on aquatic invertebrates (Ref. 38651) and fish (Ref. 56749).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00286 - 0.01212), b=2.99 (2.81 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.58 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (53 of 100) .
