Etymology: Lentipes: Latin, lens, lentis = slow + Latin, pes = foot (Ref. 45335);  kolobangara: Named for the Kolobangara Island, where most of the specimens were caught. Kolobangara refers also , in Kolobangara Island dialect, to 'water king' which is suited for this colourful species.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10. Lentipes kolobangara can be diagnosed by the following characters: pectoral fin with 17-18 rays; second dorsal fin I10; anal fin I9-10; and 7-9 scales in zigzag, 1-6 scales in transverse forward and 4-8 scales in transverse back series; and urogenital papilla retractable into a sheath-like groove in male and is without lobes or other expanded tissue. Male has few tricuspid teeth in the upper jaw (8-15) and 2-5 recurved canines posterior to tricuspid teeth, ctenoid scales on anterior body region strongly ossified, the base of the first dorsal fin not reaching the base of the second dorsal fin origin; and specific body colour with a red slim mustache on the snout reaching the eye and the base of the pectoral fins and the first third of their membrane are red (Ref. 109045).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits swift, clear, high-gradient streams with a rocky and boulder-strewn bottom between 50 and more than 600 m above sea level (Ref. 109045).

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=0.00389 (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).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
