Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Paraschistura hormuzensis can be diagnosed from the following congeners in Iran by a combination of these non-unique characters: from P. bampurensis by having only 7-10 dark-brown bars on the flank (vs. 11-18) and the pelvic fin reaching to or beyond the anus, to the anal-fin origin in some individuals (vs. not reaching to the anus, usually reaching about 1-2 eye diameter in front of the anus); from P. abdolii, P. cristata, P. kessleri and P. turcmenica by having the body fully covered by scales (vs. body scaleless or scales restricted to the caudal peduncle); from P. abdolii by a stout and deep body (body depth at dorsal-fin origin 13-18 % SL vs. 10-14 %) and from P. cristata by the absence of a dorsal adipose crest (vs. presence) and an incomplete lateral line (vs. complete) and from P. abdolii, P. aredvii, P. cristata, P. kessleri, P. nielseni and P. turcmenica by having a suborbital flap in males (vs. absent) (Ref. 103390).

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 (0.00351 - 0.01243), b=3.08 (2.92 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
