Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Gobiidae (Gobies) > Sicydiinae
Etymology: Sicydium: Greek, sika, sikya = cucumber ; diminutive (Ref. 45335).

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal; amphidromous (Ref. 92840).   Tropical

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Africa: rivers Sanaga to Ntem in Cameroon, the Benito River in Rio Muni (Equatorial Guinea) and the Kouilou River in Republic of Congo; also known from Ivory Coast (Ref. 57403, 79590). Probably more extensively distributed in the region than presently documented (Ref. 79590).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.1 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 57403)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10. Diagnosis: posterior tip of upper jaw extends to level of anterior 1/3 or 1/2 of eye; each half (left and right) of upper jaw with 22-36 long, slender, setiform, tricuspid teeth (Ref. 57403, 79590). Upper lip crenate, with an inner longitudinal furrow and a small median tubercle just posterior to the median notch; 2 pores in preopercular canal; 2-3 suborbital pigment bands (Ref. 57403, 79590).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Amphidromous freshwater species (Ref. 92840). Inhabits fast flowing parts of rivers that have rocky substrates and usually associated with rainforest zones (Ref. 10702, 57403, 79590). Adults apparently spawn in fresh water but the larvae are carried downstream to the sea, metamorphose and migrate back upstream, this cycle explaining the presence of small specimens in coastal waters (Ref. 79590). Maximum observed standard length 6.63cm (Ref. 10702, 79590). Seems evasive and difficult to catch (Ref. 57403, 79590).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
