Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-14; Anal soft rays: 15 - 18; Vertebrae: 33 - 35. Devario monticola differs from all its congeners in Sri Lankan by the combination of following characters: body depth 26-29 %SL; snout length equal to or greater than eye diameter; color pattern consisting of 4 or 5 dark, irregular, vertical bars restricted to anterior half of body; P-1 stripe narrower than P stripe, originating level with P stripe, extending to origin of caudal peduncle; 13-19 predorsal scales; dorsal fin with 9½-11½ branched rays, anal fin with 2½-15½ branched rays; a process on first infraorbital; presence of danionin notch; dorso-hypural distance when carried forward falling well short of posterior border of eye; and pectoral fin, when adpressed, not reaching origin of pelvic fin (Ref. 118056).

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=0.00708 (0.00318 - 0.01574), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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 (10 of 100) .
