Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Has a round midlateral blotch under the dorsal-fin origin in adults and a plain grey caudal fin (Ref. 27732); juveniles lack black teardrop-shaped marking on cheek; barbel always shorter than eye width (Ref. 12693).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in slowly moving or standing water habitats (Ref. 12693). Encountered also in rapid-running mountain streams of the middle Mekong (Ref. 12975). Common in impoundments, with small individuals frequenting areas of dense vegetation. Feeds mainly on prawns, crabs, and shrimps, along with some insect larvae and some fish as well. Breeds at the start of the rainy season and the young are found in seasonally flooded habitats in June. Marketed fresh (Ref. 12693).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00515 - 0.01772), b=3.05 (2.89 - 3.21), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.61 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 (49 of 100) .
