Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Oreichthys cosuatis differs from Oreichthys coorgensis by the absence of a spot on the caudal-fin base (vs. presence), having a bright-yellow dorsal fin with a large black mark covering the distal margin of the dorsal fin, and red ventral fins (vs. hyaline dorsal and ventral fins with an inconspicuous black bar on the tip of the dorsal fin), and a black spot in the anal fin (vs. a black bar on the anal fin) (Ref. 94423).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in ditches, ponds, streams and canals (Ref. 1479).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01072 (0.00511 - 0.02246), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±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 (15 of 100) .
