Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 8; Raggi anali molli: 8. Two pairs of barbels (Ref. 43281); rostral barbel extends well beyond eye; first pectoral ray sometimes reaching anal fin; narrow dark line from head to caudal-fin base (Re. 12693).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.43 se; based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
