Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Differs from congeners , with the exception of K. rupestris, in the possession of an emarginate (vs. deeply forked) caudal fin. K. sauvagii is distinguished from K. rupestris in the coloration of the iris (light brown vs. silvery white), the presence of a distinctive wide orange-red cresent-shaped marking covering the upper half of the eye (absent in K. rupestris), the absence of a black blotch on the upper and lower lobe of the caudal fin in specimens >50.0 mm SL, a lower gill-raker count (18-20 [mode 19] vs. 18-23 [mode 20]), and by more pored lateral line scales (42-44 vs. 38-41) (Ref. 87783).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01445 (0.00605 - 0.03454), b=3.06 (2.85 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
