Etymology: Acheilognathus: Greek, a = without + Greek, cheilos = lip + Greek, gnathos = jaw (Ref. 45335);  striatus: The specific epithet striatus (from the Latin striae) meaning stripe, refers to the prominent character of broad longitudinal stripe on body. It is to be treated as a noun in apposition.

Asia: China. Lower Yangtze River, Wuyuan County, Jiangxi Province. Presently only known from upper part of Le’an River, around Wuyuan County, Jiangxi Province, China. Le’an River drains into the Poyang Lake, which in turn flows into lower reaches of the Yangtze River(Ref. 84025).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

The new species can be distinguished from all congeners by the following combined characters: a pair of relatively long barbels, slightly longer than half of eye diameter (barbels 59.8–67.2% of eye diameter); dorsal fin with three simple and 8 (54*)-9 (3) branched fin rays, anal fin with three simple and 7 (7)-8 (50*) branched fin rays; a black longitudinal stripe on body from the base of caudal peduncle, distinctly reaching anteriorly to the vertical line from the origin of dorsal fin, broader in males than in females; a scale distance between the longitudinal stripe and lateral line below the origin of dorsal fin; dorsal and anal fin margined with black band in males (Ref. 84025).

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):  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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
