Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 38. Leptobotia micra is diagnosed from all its congeners by a combination of the following characters: absence of dark bars or dorsal saddles on body; a row of white dots along dorsal midline; 4+34 vertebrae; predorsal distance 58.1-59.0% SL; eye diameter 1.8?2.0% SL; pelvic fins not reaching anus; caudin fin emarginate (length of median rays 1.3?1.4 times in length of lower lobe); and the anus positioned distinctly closer to anal-fin origin than to pelvic-fin base (Ref. 116421).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00646 (0.00285 - 0.01461), b=3.03 (2.84 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100) .
