Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cyprinodontiformes (Rivulines, killifishes and live bearers) > Poeciliidae (Poeciliids) > Poeciliinae
Etymology: Phalloceros: Greek, phallos = penis + Greek, keras = horn (Ref. 45335);  ocellatus: From the Latin adjective ocellatus, meaning with little eyes, from ocellus, diminutive of oculus, eye, alluding to the lateral spot, which is rounded and has an external light right.

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 1.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 76852); 2.5 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-8; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10; Vertebrae: 31 - 32. Distinguished from all other species of the genus Phalloceros, except Phalloceros leticiae and Phalloceros mikrommatos by the roundish to rounded and well-defined ocellated lateral spot. Differs from Phalloceros leticiae by the postorbital length in females 24.8-39.3 % SL (vs. 39.2-42.2 % SL) and in males 29.3-38.2 % SL (vs. 36.7-42.3 % SL); and from Phalloceros mikrommatos by the number of anal-fin rays in females 10 (vs. 11) (Ref. 76852).

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=0.00676 (0.00289 - 0.01579), b=3.13 (2.94 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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) .
