Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. Distinguished from its congener by having 9-10 1/2 branched dorsal rays (vs. 12 1/2); anus situated under branched dorsal rays 2-3; distance from anus to anal fin origin greater than length of base of dorsal fin (Ref. 39226).
Found in a stream with slow current and with depth never more than 30 cm during the dry season. Also collected in turbid waters at a depth between 0 to 2 m on muddy bottom along sandy banks (Ref. 39226).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.7500 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00661 (0.00308 - 0.01417), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.9 ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
