soft rays: 10. Stiphodon aureofuscus can be distinguished by the following characters: pectoral fin with 14-15 rays; second dorsal fin with 9 segmented rays; absence of scales on predorsal in males; 6-8 scales in transverse forward series and 7-9 in transverse back series; typical color pattern of adult males is golden and black with red dorsal fins with a yellow upper margin; in females the anteriormost parts of the dorsal fins and the base of the caudal fin are red (Ref. 105117).
Inhabits clear, high gradient stream with rocky bottom. Occurs on the bottom of the river, perching on rocks, between 100 and 400 m in altitude. Assumed to be amphidromous (Ref. 105117).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
