Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 6; Vertebrae: 39 - 41. Can be differentiated from Pareuchiloglanis macrotrema and P. poilanei in having a unique combination of the following characters: preanal distance 73.0-73.4 %SL, adipose fin length 28.3-30.9 %SL, caudal peduncle depth 5.7-7.7 %SL, head length 22.5-23.8 %SL, head width 18.2-19.6 %SL, interorbital distance 29.3-35.6 %HL, and adipose fin not contiguous with caudal fin; caudal fin with 7+7-8 rays; brown on dorsal and lateral surfaces of head and body, light yellow on ventral region; dorsal surfaces of head and body with a series of small light-yellow patches; dorsal and caudal fins brown; dorsal surfaces of pectoral and pelvic fins brown, with anal fin and ventral surfaces of pectoral and pelvic fins light yellow; in life, reddish brown with yellowish belly, body markings yellowish brown (Ref. 37037).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00297 - 0.01169), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
