Etymology: Garra: Name based on a vernacular Indian name (Hamilton, 1822:343, Ref. 1813).;  chebera: The species name chebera is in reference to Chebera-Churchura national park, the locality in which the type series was collected (Ref. 84041).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; pelagic.   Tropical; 18°C - ? (Ref. 84041)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 7. Diagnosis: This species is unique among African Garra in possession of 2 simple and 13 branched rays on the pectoral fin and 1 simple and 8 branched rays on the pelvic fin (Ref. 84041). In addition, it is distinguished from African congeners by the following combination of features: well-developed, large papillate type C disc; fully scaled predorsal region and scaled post pelvic region; unscaled chest and belly; vent located close to anal fin, vent distance 13.2-24.2% of the distance between anal and pelvic fin origins; and intestine long, standard length 28.4-42.0% of intestine length (Ref. 84041).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in slow flowing pools over sandy substrate, with dense woody river bank veg­etation and complete shade at zenith; mean depth of 25 cm, water temperature of 18.3°C and flow rate of 1.3 m/s (Ref. 84041).

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=0.00832 (0.00356 - 0.01943), b=3.09 (2.88 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (17 of 100) .
