Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cobitidae (Loaches) > Cobitinae
Etymology: Microcobitis: Name from the Greek word ‘micros’ for small (used as prefix here) and the generic name Cobitis (type genus of Cobitidae), in which Microcobitis was originally placed due to the similar shape of the lamina circularis in males..

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 35 - 36. This species possess the following characters: reaches a maximum size of 41 mm SL (vs. ranging from 60 to 300 mm SL); 35-36 vertebrae (vs. 40-52); small metapterygoidquadrate-fenestra with maximum length up to 50% of length of metapterygoid (vs. either absent or maximum length more than 60 % of length of metapterygoid); a shallow postero-dorsal notch of quadrate, length not more than half the height (vs. deep, as long as high or longer) and with usually 5, rarely 4, hypurals (vs. 3-4 hypurals). However, Microcobitis shares these five character states with one or more species in the genera Kottelatlimia, Lepidocephalichthys and Pangio, which are phylogenetically not closely related, suggesting a parallel evolution in several characters (Ref. 86547).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00513 (0.00229 - 0.01150), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assumed Fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
