(Ricefishes) > Oryziinae
Etymology: Oryzias: Greek, oryza = rice; because of the habitat used by this fish (Ref. 45335); hadiatyae: Name for Renny Kurnia Hadiaty who contributed significantly to the exploration of fish diversity in the Malili Lakes area and discovered this endemic ricefish in remote Lake Masapi.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Tropical
Asia: Lake Masapi in central Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 19 - 22;
Vertebrae: 28 - 30. Diagnosed from all species of Adrianichthyidae in Sulawesi by the combination of the following characters: snout with a well marked concavity; a slightly upwards directed mouth; a slender but relatively wide body (body depth 18.2-25.7% SL, body width 10.9-14.5% SL); pelvic
fins with 5-6 rays inserting relatively close to the rear end of the body (prepelvic length >47.7% SL); anal fin with 19-22 rays inserting relatively close to the rear end of the body (preanal length >63% SL); dorsal fin with 8-10 rays inserted above 10-12th anal-fin ray; 28-30 vertebrae; large eyes (30-39.8% HL); scales on the lateral line 27-31, transversal scale rows ½ 10-14; absence of dark blackish, dark bluish, or steel blue body coloration or brilliant red marks in both sexes;
presence of dark brown blotches on the lateral body in adult males; and absence of these blotches in females (Ref. 85098).
Inhabits blackwater lake which is almost circular and only a few meters deep, surrounded by rain forest. The introduced predatory snakehead, Channa striata, occupies the same shallow shoreline habitats of this species and appears likely to cause threats (Ref. 85098).
