Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from its congeners by the possession of the following characters: lateral line usually with 30-38 + 2-3 scales; 3-4 (usually 3) scale rows between lateral line and pelvic fin origin; 11-12 circumpeduncular scale rows; eye diameter smaller than snout length; snout rounded, obtuse; and ventral profile of head with a marked angle at articulation of lower jaw (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occur in coastal rivers and terminal segments of main rivers. Adults are found commonly in lower reaches of rivers (Ref. 59043). Threatened due to pollution and habitat destruction (Ref. 26100).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00309 - 0.01230), 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):  3.0   ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (33 of 100) .
