Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 2; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 7-9; Spine anali 2-3; Raggi anali molli: 16 - 19. Can be easily confused with Micralestes acutidens but has a more slender body with no black tip to the dorsal fin. Does not possess a pair of conical teeth behind row of teeth in lower jaw as in M. acutidens.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Shoals in shallow, vegetated marginal and floodplain habitats. Appears to prefer a swampy environment to open water (Ref. 13337). Feeds on small aquatic insects and other invertebrates. A partial spawner, breeding during high-water periods (Ref. 7248). Known to migrate up rivers and on to floodplains during flood season (Ref. 13337).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01148 (0.00528 - 0.02495), b=3.00 (2.82 - 3.18), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.39 se; based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
