Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5. Pelvic fin origin under the base of the first to second branched dorsal fin ray; pelvic fin not reaching anus which is situated 1-1.5 eye diameter in front of anal-fin origin; caudal fin deeply emarginate, tips rounded.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality is a small stream. The water at the type locality was clear with a moderate to swift current; substrate was gravel. The only other species collected at this locality was Schistura macrotaenia (Yang, 1990). From stomach content analysis, specimens contained mainly aquatic plants and a few aquatic insects.

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=0.00676 (0.00318 - 0.01437), b=3.01 (2.84 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.6   ±0.27 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
