Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 31. Garra biloborostris can be distinguished from its congeners in north east India in having a unique combination of the following characters: a proboscis represented by two separate, slightly elevated arch-shaped lobes; each lobe demarcated from depressed rostral surface by a shallow groove, with three acanthoid tubercles on its anterodorsal marginal aspect (medial tubercle large-sized and lateral ones medium-sized); lateral surface of the snout bulgy giving lobe like appearance; transverse lobe appearing a prominent knob as the demarcating transverse groove extending laterally on each side, its dorsal surface covered with 10-16 small- to medium-sized acanthoid tubercles; 30 + 3 scales on lateral line; dorsal fin with 8½ branched rays; and anal fin with 5½ branched rays (Ref. 118049)

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00724 (0.00310 - 0.01692), b=3.07 (2.90 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
