Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8; Vertebrae: 40. Distinguished from most of its congeners, except Ituglanis macunaima and Ituglanis parahybae, by having a pectoral fin ray count of I,4. Differs also from all its congeners, excluding Ituglanis parahybae, by the coloration pattern with longitudinal rows of coalescing blotches. Can be differentiated from Ituglanis parahybae by the supraorbital laterosensory canal branch with pores s3 and s6 present.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in brown waters with moderate flowing current and sandy or gravel bottom. Feeds on insect larvae, nymphs and organic matter (Ref. 57703).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this 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):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
