Etymology: Schistura: Greek, schizein = to divide + Greek, oura = tail; an allusion to forked caudal fins (Ref. 45335);  albirostris: Derived from Latin albi (= white colored) and rostrata (= nose or beak), in reference to the unpigmented area on the snout. Treated as an adjective in the feminine nominative singular.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal; depth range ? - 1 m (Ref. 93052).   Tropical, preferred ?

Max length : 4.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 93052)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 4-7; Anal soft rays: 3 - 5; Vertebrae: 38. Can be diagnosed by having a distinctive rectangular unpigmented area on the snout and ethmoid region anterior to the nares, five to seven prominent dark saddles traversing the dorsum and confluent with dark, oblique lateral bars that are expanded ventrally, a disassociated basicaudal bar, an incomplete lateral line, no suborbital flap in males, and a weakly-developed processus dentiformis (Ref. 93052).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a reach of alternating riffles and flowing pools, river width was about 20m, depth to 1m, water clear, substrates generally unembedded and consisting of mixed cobble and gravel. Sympatric with Garra tengchongensis Zhang & Chen, Pseudorasbora parva (Temminck and Schlegel), Schistura polytaenia (Zhu), Schistura vinciguerrae (Hora), Misgurnus anguillicaudatus (Cantor), Oreoglanis insignis Ng and Rainboth, and Pareuchiloglanis macropterus Ng (Ref. 93052).

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=0.00617 (0.00292 - 0.01304), b=3.03 (2.84 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 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 (11 of 100) .
