Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. Distinguished from all other members of the genus by the following combination of characters: 8-9 anal rays; dorsal fins with VI - I,9-10 rays; first dorsal fin with a diagonal black band; females with a thin dark band crossing the chin; juvenile females with a triangular dark patch in region of isthmus; orange pigmentation on dorsal surface of body, and caudal and pectoral fin bases in both juveniles and adults; light blue or turquoise mottling on the head, nape and dorsal surface; sexually dimorphic head morphology (% HL), head lengths similar, males with 5% greater eye diameter and 30% greater lower jaw length, females with 5% greater snout length, 7% greater post orbital length and 6 % greater head width; sexually dimorphic fin morphology (% SL), males with 5% larger first dorsal fin base and females with 7% larger pectoral and 5 % larger pelvic fins (Ref. 55545).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Seems to prefer shallow and clear water riffles with slow or moderate current speed and with a substrate of small boulders and gravel (Ref. 55545).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00871 (0.00395 - 0.01919), b=3.05 (2.86 - 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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
