Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cobitidae (Loaches) > Cobitinae
Etymology: lumbriciformis: Deriived from the Latin lumbricus (earthworm) and formis (having the form), in reference to the worm-like body of this species which is round in cross section.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 54 - 56. Differs from all its congeners except P. signicauda by its unusual color pattern consisting of a number of dark saddle like marks on the dorsum, a dark double spot at the caudal fin base and a horizontal stripe and a transverse subdistal band in the caudal fin, and by its total number of 54-56 vertebrae. Can be differentiated from P. signicauda by a more slender body (body depth 13.6-15.4 times in SL vs. 10.8-13.8 times in SL, ratio body depth-body width 1.2-1.5 vs. 1.6-2.2) and a more slender and less laterally compressed caudal peduncle (ratio caudal peduncle depth/width 1.1-1.3 vs. 1.5-2.0). Among other Myanmar Pangio, it is distinguished further from P. fusca and P. pangia by a narrower (caudal peduncle depth 4.8-5.0 % SL vs. 5.9-9.7) and longer caudal peduncle (caudal peduncle length 15.5-16.6 % SL vs. 9.5-12.5), from P. pangia by shorter pectoral fins (5.2-6.5 % SL vs. 8.2-9.6) and a more slender body (body depth 6.5-7.3 % SL vs. 13.5-16.3), from P. fusca by the presence of the pelvic girdle and fins (vs. absence) and the absence of a nasal barbel (vs. presence), and from P. elongata by the position of the pelvic fins (basipterygia at vertebra 29 vs. 33) (Ref. 57993).

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=0.00513 (0.00229 - 0.01150), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 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) .
