Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal soft rays: 9; Vertebrae: 48. Distinguished from all congeners except Pangio bitaimac, P. cuneovirgata, P. doriae, P. filinaris, P. fusca, P. lidi and P. longimanus by having a long, pointed narial flap (nasal barbel). Can be separated from these seven species and in addition from all other congeners by its unique color pattern consisting of a midlateral stripe and a reticulated pattern of chromatophores loosely organized in a middorsal and paired dorsolateral bands on a light beige background (Ref. 91039).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in shallow part of a medium-sized clear water stream, up to 200 m wide and up to at least 2 m deep with sand, gravel and stones as substrate. Its type series was collected from a shallow part of the river with a fast current over medium-sized rounded stones and sandy patches as substrate. Caught only from sandy areas (Ref. 93057).

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):  3.2   ±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) .
