Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 7; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 7; Spine anali 1; Raggi anali molli: 7. Color pattern consists of many narrow dark horizontal lines on the sides (one per scale row), generally light brown bands alternating with dark brown midlateral stripes, and the caudal fin is always spotted, alternating white and brown bands. Distinguished from Belobranchus segura by the combination of the following characters: 27-35 scales in transverse forward series (vs. 22-28); 21-34 predorsal scales (vs. 16-23); 20-23 transverse back series (vs. 18-21); head length 29-36% of SL (vs. 26-31% of SL) and predorsal length 40-46% SL (vs. (38-42 % SL) (Ref. 91761).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01047 (0.00452 - 0.02424), b=3.06 (2.86 - 3.26), 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
Resilienza (Ref. 69278):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
