Max length : 3.4 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 83562)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-14; Anal soft rays: 13 - 14. This species differs from its sister species Zoogoneticus quitzeoensis in having a shorter preorbital distance (Prol/SL mean = 0.056, SD =0.01); a longer dorsal fin base length (DFL/SL mean = 0.18, SD = 0.03); 13-14 dorsal fin rays (Ref. 83562).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality is a permanent spring of lentic and clear waters and forms a small pond of approximately 1500 sq.m; the bottom rocky in its periphery and muddy in most of the pond. Aquatic vegetation composed of Iris sp. and Ceratophyllum sp, emergent vegetation Typha sp. and Scirpus sp., and the introduced species Eichhornia sp; the terrestrial vegetation is of the subtropical forest type. Associated fish fauna are the native species, Alloophorus robustus, Chapalichthys encaustus, Goodea atripinnis, Skiffia multipunctata (Goodeidae); Poeciliopsis infans (Poeciliidae); Lampetra geminis (Petromyzontidae); and introduced species Poecilia mexicana, Xiphophorus hellerii (Poeciliidae), Oreochromis spp. (Cichlidae), Cyprinus carpio, and Ctenopharingodon idella (Cyprinidae) (Ref. 83562).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [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), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.4   ±0.1 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) .
