Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal soft rays: 4 - 5; Vertebrae: 40 - 42. Can be differentiated from its congeners in having a unique combination of the following characters: lower lip lacking a median notch and having a posterior margin with lobulate projections, lunate caudal fin with elongate, strap-like lower principal ray in mature males, gill slit arched, nasal barbel reaching about half of the distance to the eye, presence of a pale elliptical patch on sides of body below adipose fin, male genital papilla located immediately behind the anus in a depression terminating posteriorly with a straight transverse wall, caudal peduncle 6.1-7.1 times longer than deep, length of caudal peduncle 18.7-21.7% SL, depth of caudal peduncle 2.7-3.6% SL, post-adipose distance 8.6-11.6% SL, snout length 57.9-61.2% HL, eye diameter 8.6-10.0% HL, interorbital distance 23.7-27.2% HL and maxillary barbel with rounded tip (Ref. 37793); lower caudal lobe with a long ribbon-like extension in male (Ref. 43281).

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=0.00589 (0.00297 - 0.01169), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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):  Moderate vulnerability (40 of 100) .
