Etymology: Mystus: Greek, mystax = whiskered, used by Belon in 1553 to describe all fishes with whiskers (Ref. 45335);  impluviatus: From the Latin impluvium, referring to a skylight, in allusion to the second posterior fontanel on the supraoccipital of this species.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal soft rays: 11 - 13; Vertebrae: 37 - 39. Differs from both Mystus castaneus and Mystus nigriceps in having a second posterior fontanel on the supraoccipital. It further differs from Mystus castaneus in having a shallower adipose fin (4.7-6.0% SL vs. 6.1-7.0), smaller serrations on the posterior edge of the pectoral spine (maximum height of serrations 3.6-4.8% of spine length vs 6.9-8.0) and a more deeply forked caudal fin with a more slender upper lobe. Further differs from Mystus nigriceps in having a longer adipose fin base (31.6-36.1% SL vs 26.3-31.4), longer second and third dorsal fin rays, causing the dorsal fin to appear less rounded, and a brown body with a distinct darl triangular patch on the base of the caudal peduncle (vs. greenish gray body with a diffuse dark triangular patch on the base of the caudal peduncle).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Oviparous, distinct pairing possibly like other members of the same family (Ref. 205).

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=0.00759 (0.00343 - 0.01679), b=2.97 (2.79 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming Fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
