Etymology: Schistura: Greek, schizein = to divide + Greek, oura = tail; an allusion to forked caudal fins (Ref. 45335);  nubigena: From the Latin nubigenus, -a, -um, which engenders clouds, in reference to the white spots on the back resulting from the partial fusion of the bars (nubigena is also a noun which means cloud-born, but this is not the meaning used here). An adjective.

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

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 8. Schistura nubigena can be diagnosed from all its congeners by having a unique color pattern consisting of 4 black bars in juveniles that evolve into 8 bars, more or less fused on the flank and the back to leave only 2 series of pale yellowish spots in the predorsal area and 4 narrow transverse bands in subdorsal and postdorsal areas. Other helpful non-unique diagnostic characters include the following: latera line incomplete, reaching at most to above pelvic-fin base; proximal extremity of all rays of caudal fin with two vertically elongated blotches (one blotch per lobe); absence of sexual dimorphism; and dorsal fin with 8½ branched rays (Ref. 116725).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs together with Malihkaia aligera in fast riffles over gravel and cobble (Ref. 116725).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
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 (10 of 100) .
