Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Beloniformes (Needle fishes) > Adrianichthyidae (Ricefishes) > Oryziinae
Etymology: Oryzias: Greek, oryza = rice; because of the habitat used by this fish (Ref. 45335);  nebulosus: The specific name, nebulosus, misty or foggy, connotes a species previously unrecognized among the melanistic Oryzias in Lake Poso.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical; 1°S - 3°S, 120°W - 121°W (Ref. 54508)

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Asia: Endemic to Lake Poso and its tributary stream, Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 3.3 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 54508)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-11; Anal soft rays: 21 - 22; Vertebrae: 30 - 32. Having a unique sexual dichromatism: adult males dark gray to black in color, while females lighter grayish-yellow to brown. Some adult males possess external conical teeth on the jaws. Lateral process of pelvic bone is in line with the third or fourth pleural rib; precaudal vertebrae 11-13, modally 12; and dorsal fin relatively anterior (origin above 12-14th anal-fin ray); straight, narrow and slender ossified and cartilaginous portions of the gill arches. Dorsal body profile arches gently from head to dorsal-fin origin (Ref. 54508).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected in the morning in clear water over a bottom of sand, pebbles and fallen branches and during night time from a boat traveling along the lake shore, including the mouth of the tributary stream (Ref. 54508). Infested with parasitic copepods, Lernaea sp. (Ref. 54508).

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=0.00490 (0.00192 - 0.01252), b=3.13 (2.91 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Assuming fec < 100).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
