Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 32. Garra clavirostris can be diagnosed from all other species of the genus in the Brahmaputra and the Chindwin drainages by the combination of the following characters: a transverse lobe bearing 17-25 small- to large-sized multicuspid tubercles; a prominent club-shaped unilobed proboscis prominently protruding forward and overhanging the depressed rostral surface, with a row of 5-9 medium- to large-sized uni- to multi-cuspid tubercles on its anterior margin; the antero-ventral marginal aspect of the proboscis with 5-6 medium-sized uni- to multi-cuspid tubercles, distinctly differentiated from the depressed rostral surface by a distinct transverse groove; dorsal fin with 8½ or 9½ branched; anal fin with 5½ branched rays; lateral line with 33-34 scales; presence of a black spot at the upper angle of gill opening; and 4-5 narrow black stripes laterally, more distinct towards the caudal peduncle (Ref. 117346).

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=0.00692 (0.00295 - 0.01623), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
