Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 38 - 39. This species can be distinguished from its congeners by this set of characters: the most elongated body, body depth/SL 8.62-10.68% (vs. 11.70-16.55%); eyeless; caudal fin forked; well-developed adipose crests on caudal peduncle; body naked and de-pigmented. It is similar to O. translucens by lacking eyes and with forked caudal fin, but differs from the latter by the appearance of anterior nostril (long nostril tube and barbel of the anterior nostril, 18.6-26.3% HL) and caudal crests (adipose and not transparent) as well as more counts of vertebrae (4+38-39 vs. 4+32) (Ref. 88136).

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=0.00871 (0.00387 - 0.01962), b=2.92 (2.73 - 3.11), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (21 of 100) .
