Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Differs from other species of the genus by the following combination of characters: 17-21 branched anal fin rays, predorsal length (52.5-55.4% SL), preventral length (47.8-51.0% SL), preanal length (63.0-68.8% SL), caudal peduncle length (12.3-14.3% SL) and eye diameter (33.1-37.0% HL). Further differs by having seven to ten dentary teeth decreasing in size gradually, inner premaxillary teeth wider distally; one vertically elongated black humeral spot, separated from a second posterior one by 3 or 4 scales; narrow lateral band becoming wider below middle of dorsal fin base (Ref. 55781).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in rapids and small falls with clear flowing water, pools and some areas with slow current (Ref. 55781). The depth of the streams ranges from 0.40 to 1.3 m and the bottom is composed of sand and mostly stones (Ref. 55781).
