Etymology: Oreoglanis: Greek, oreos = mountain+Greek, glanis = Latin, aurum = gold + Greek, glanis = a fish that can eat the bait without touching the hook; a cat fish (Ref. 45335);  vicinus: The specific name comes from the Latin adjective vicinus (neighboring), in allusion to the close proximity of distributional ranges it shares with two other congeners (Oreoglanis colurus and Oreoglanis tenuicauda). ).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 83406)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal soft rays: 4 - 5; Vertebrae: 33 - 37. Belongs to the Oreoglanis delacouri species group as it lacks a distinct median notch on the posterior margin of the lower lip. Can be distinguished from other members of the genus in having the following combination of characters: maxillary barbel with rounded tip, dentary tooth patches separated by approximately one-third to half their width, pectoral fin reaching beyond pelvic-fin origin, body depth at anus 10.0-12.6 % SL, adipose fin confluent with upper procurrent caudal-fin rays, caudal peduncle length 15.1-21.2 % SL, caudal peduncle depth 5.0-6.9 % SL, caudal peduncle depth 2.51-3.80 times in its length and lunate caudal fin with upper and lower first principal ray of approximately the same length (Ref. 83406).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in rocky, fast-flowing streams (Ref. 83406).

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=0.00589 (0.00297 - 0.01169), b=3.06 (2.88 - 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 ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
