Etymology: Amblyrhynchichthys: Greek, amblys = darkness + Greek, rhyngchos = snout + Greek, ichthys = fish (Ref. 45335);  micracanthus: From the Greek mikros, meaning small, and akantha, meaning thorn, in reference to the smaller dorsal spine of this species compared to Amblyrhynchichthys micracanthus..   More on author: Kottelat.

Max length : 19.7 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 55878)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from its only congener, Amblyrhynchichthys truncatus, in possessing a more truncate snout (straight vs. gently rounded lateral profile), shorter dorsal spine (15.5-25.7% SL vs. 26.7-29.9), smaller eye when similar-sized individuals of larger than ca. 7 cm SL are compared (28.7-34.9% HL vs. 32.7-36.3) and fewer gill rakers (34-37 vs. 39-40) (Ref. 55878).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits mainly rivers, with juvenile occasionally entering swamps and flooded fields and feeds mainly on periphyton (Ref. 55878).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00433 - 0.02010), b=3.03 (2.85 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.3 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 (36 of 100) .
