Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from all congeners by the unique combination of the following characters: dorsal-fin rays 3,8½ -9½ ; anal-fin rays 3,5- 5½ ; pectoral-fin rays 1,11; scales absent; two saddle-like dark blotches with fuzzy borders cranial to the dorsal fin and four saddle-like dark blotches caudal to the dorsal fin; distal margin of dorsal fin emarginate; pelvic fin reaching caudally almost to the anus; anus located immediately cranial to the origin of the anal fin; caudal fin forked; caudal chamber of air bladder reduced to a small free protuberance; head slightly laterally compressed, head depth greater than head width at nape; caudal peduncle length 18.0-20.0% of SL; caudal peduncle depth 7.8-8.4% of SL; eye diameter 17.6-21.4% of HL; body depth 60.7-70.2% of HL; caudal peduncle depth 39.1-45.0% of caudal peduncle length; body width at the base of caudal peduncle 59.0-68.0% of body depth at the base of caudal peduncle (Ref. 80923).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits river with an altitude of 1770 m and a width of about 7 m (Ref. 80923). The river is in a karst gorge with rocky bottom (Ref. 80923).

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=0.00676 (0.00318 - 0.01437), b=3.01 (2.84 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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) .
