Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Bangana brevirostris can be distinguished from all congeners from China and lower Mekong River outside of China by the following combination of characters: mental groove short and shallow, anteriorly connected with the end of the postlabial groove, terminating beneath the anterior margin of the eye; a pair of minute rostral barbels, situated below anterior end of shallow furrow on side of snout; dorsal fin with 12–13 branched rays; 42–44 lateral-line scales; eye large, its diameter 28.1–32.9 % HL; snout short, its length 25.5–32.7 % HL.

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=0.00661 (0.00308 - 0.01417), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (23 of 100) .
