Max length : 30.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75626)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 8. Differs from all congeners from Java, Sumatra and Borneo by its head top with conspicuous anterodorsal projection, somewhat in front of the eye, covered by small tubercles. Additional characters useful to distinguish this species include: lateral line scales 31+3-4; absence of black blotch on caudal peduncle; presence of blackish to black subdistal posterior crescentic mark (apex pointing backwards) on most body scales; 2 barbels, less than eye diameter; pectoral fin extending slightly beyond pelvic-fin origin; pelvic fin extending base of anal fin; when folded backwards, dorsal-fin tip extending to or beyond vertical through anus; scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin 5½ (Ref. 75626).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Reaches up to about 30 cm SL (Ref. 75626).

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=0.00977 (0.00381 - 0.02510), b=2.98 (2.75 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (45 of 100) .
