Etymology: Odontesthes: Greek, odous = teeth + Greek,esthes = suit, something used to wrap (Ref. 45335);  bicudo: From Portugues word meaning pointed, with a beak, and alludes to the snout shape of this species.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; pelagic.   Subtropical

South America: group of partially isolated freshwater lakes northeast of the city of Osorio, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 20.5 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 47314)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 4 - 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 15 - 18; Vertebrae: 47 - 49. Scales in lateral line series above lateral band 48-52; predorsal scales 23-26. Specimens over 10.0 cm SL are recognized by the elongate head, small eyes, narrow interorbital, long snout and thick pointed premaxilla. Easily distinguished from O. piquava and O. mirinensis by several head shape characters. Ventral head profile nearly straight, sometimes with a slight convexity at the retroarticular joint; eyes clearly smaller than snout length; reticulate pigmented pattern in the border of check scales and body scales above and below lateral band (Ref. 47314).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in exclusively freshwater lakes of the coastal laguna system (Ref. 47314).

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=0.00575 (0.00261 - 0.01268), b=3.03 (2.83 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
