Morphology | Morphometrics
Dorsal fin with 8 1/2 branched rays; presence of conspicuous pad on tip of snout overhanging mouth; body with 13-17 dark brown transverse bars; pectoral fin reaches midway to base of pelvic, the latter just reaches anus or a little beyond; anus situated nearer to anal fin than to origin of pelvic fin; mouth semicircular, situated a little behind the snout; upper lip thin, moderately hypertrophied, a pad-like structure in the middle; body covered with scales except hear, but more sparsely between pectoral fins; scales minute, oval-shaped with large focus (Ref. 42975).
Inhabits streams with pebbly bottom (Ref. 41236).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5312 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.9 ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
