Etymology: Parananochromis: Greek, para = the side of + Latin, nannus = small + Greek, chromis = a fish, perhaps a perch (Ref. 45335);  elobatus: Combination of the prefix e, meaning without, and lobatus, meaning lobed, referring to the short lappets of the dorsal fin (Ref. 97361).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15 - 17; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Diagnosis: Parananochromis elobatus is distinguished from all congeners except P. brevirostris and P. ornatus by the presence of 3 tubular infraorbital bones vs. 4, and from all congeners except P. brevirostris by absence of scales on chest and a weakly developed pharyngeal pad vs. well developed (Ref. 97361). It is distinguished from P. brevirostris in lacking elongated fin lappets in the dorsal fin vs. presence of elongated fin lappets, and in having golden dots on scales of mid-lateral scale row and row immediately below vs. in 2-3 ventralmost lateral scale rows (Ref. 97361).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this 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) .
