Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-12; Anal soft rays: 18 - 19; Vertebrae: 26. Papiliolebias francescae is distinguished from all congeners by the following unique characters: pointed dorsal and anal fins in males (vs. rounded); oblique, chevron-shaped, blue-gray and dark red stripes in close proximity on flanks of males (vs. never a similar color pattern); proximal half dorsal and anal fin whitish with broad dark red elongated spots (vs. proximal portion black with white spots); two or three transverse rows of dark red spots on caudal fin (vs. never a similar color pattern); pupil with anterior pointed extension (vs. rounded pupil) (Ref. 111235).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in a quite shallow (about 0.40-1.0 m deep), temporary pool about 60 meters long and 10 meters wide, with clear water and litter at the bottom (Ref. 111235).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01175 (0.00449 - 0.03072), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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) .
