Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7. Presence of 20-22 lateral plates; 5 branched anal-fin rays. Absence of pad on snout tip. Blunt and deep snout, snout 45.5-50.9% in HL; eye 13.4-17.1% in HL. Absence of predorsal unpaired plates.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits stream with two different environment, one which has the natural vegetation of the region and the other one which has introduced coniferous trees. This fish occurs in the portion of the stream where a plantation of small coniferous trees exposes the brook completely to sunlight (Ref. 72404).

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=0.00550 (0.00228 - 0.01325), b=3.11 (2.91 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.1   ±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) .
