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

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cyprinodontiformes (Rivulines, killifishes and live bearers) > Rivulidae (Rivulines)
Etymology: faucireticulatus: Derived from the Latin fauces (throat) and reticulatus (with reticulum), in reference to the unique black reticulate color pattern on the ventral portion of the head in females.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic; pH range: 5.5 - ?.   Tropical

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

South America: known only from the type locality, small ponds in Bonfim river floodplains, upper Claro drainage, upper Paraná river basin in Brazil.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 3.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75134); 2.3 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal soft rays: 13 - 14; Vertebrae: 30. Distinguished from all congeners by the following unique color patterns: a broad subbasal red stripe on the dorsal fin in males; ventral portion of the head with a black reticulate pattern in females; caudal fin orange on the dorsal and ventral portions, yellow on the middle in females (Ref. 75134).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits ponds with clear water, about 1.5 m deep, connected to shallow creeks of about 0.05 m deep (Ref. 75134). Adults stay close to the surface of the ponds, near emerging aquatic plants while a few juveniles occur in shallow creek (Ref. 75134).

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=0.00479 (0.00199 - 0.01154), b=3.14 (2.93 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 (10 of 100) .
