Etymology: Microrasbora: Greek,mikros = small + Rasbora, a word used in India and Malay Peninsula;  microphthalma: Derived from the Greek micro (small), ophthalm from opthalmos (eyes), in reference to its relative smaller eyes when compared to its congeners..   More on author: Yang.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 2.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75599)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-8; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10; Vertebrae: 30. Can be diagnosed from all its congeners by the following characters: pre-dorsal scales 15-16; predorsal length 60.68% of SL; preanal length 65-71% of SL; eye diameter 27-38% of HL and 70-93% of inter-orbital width; and dorsal fin origin posterior to pelvic fin insertion (Ref. 75599).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in small hill stream with sandy bottom and numerous cobblestones. Food items found in the intestines include zooplankton and phytoplankton (Ref. 75599).

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=0.00550 (0.00255 - 0.01184), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 (10 of 100) .
