Freshwater; demersal; potamodromous (Ref. 51243). Tropical; 20°C - 25°C (Ref. 2059)
Asia: Chao Phraya basin and streams of the Gulf of Thailand (Ref. 12693). Reported from the Mekong basin (Ref. 26336).
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 28.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 12693)
Has 4 stripes on caudal peduncle; 11-12 predorsal scales; 5+20 gill rakers on anterior side of first arch (Ref. 12693).
Inhabits large and medium-sized rivers as well as streams. Diet is probably similar to other species of Lobocheilos (Ref. 12693). Found browsing on algae growing on rocks in clear, shallow water (Ref. 1632).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00451 - 0.02020), b=3.02 (2.84 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
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) .
