Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 8. Schistura nebeshwari differs from other congeners with a dorsal adipose crest on the caudal peduncle by the combination of the following characters: body with 11-14 dark olivaceous bars; entire ventral surface of head with numerous small melanophores; incomplete lateral line, three black spots at the dorsal-fin base; a complete prominent black basicaudal bar; lower jaw with a shallow median notch; suborbital flap absent in males; cheek inflated; and deep caudal peduncle with prominent dorsal adipose crest (Ref. 94459).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species usually inhabits brooks and streams with slow to swift current, among small pebbles, stones, and boulders in southern Mizoram. Its holotype was collected from a stream near Phura village near Palak Lake (the Koladyne basin), among small pebbles, in slow current. Three paratypes were caught from the Kolchaw River near Kolchaw in Saiha District, Mizoram. This species co-occurs with the following fishes: Olyra sp. (Bagridae); Barilius profundus, Devario sp., Pethia sp., Garra sp. (Cyprinidae); Schistura scyphovecteta (Nemacheilidae); and Glyptothorax jayarami (Sisoridae) (Ref. 94459).

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=0.00617 (0.00255 - 0.01493), b=3.02 (2.84 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 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 (14 of 100) .
