Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. Distinguished from all other species of the genus by the following combination of characters: D1 VI, D2 I, 8, A I, 8, P 15-16; complete body squamation, lateral line scales 32-33; cephalic lateral-line system: anterior oculoscapular canal much reduced, ending between eyes with or without pores')… (if pore')… is present then a pore ')…' is present too), with pore K (always paired), with pore a and always with pore a'; preopercular canal absent; oculoscapular row z separated in two sections; paired interorbital row p present; eyes large, interorbital space distinctly smaller than eye diameter; coloration of first dorsal fin: adult females with a broad dark band on distal third, adult males with two dark spots (Ref. 26720).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in freshwater spring and small brook flowing towards nearby lagoons; also in associated wetlands. No biological data available (Ref. 59043). Is threatened due to water abstraction and pollution (Ref. 26100).

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=0.00891 (0.00412 - 0.01928), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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) .
