Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Adults are distinguished from all other Indian and Sri Lankan Puntius by possessing unique color pattern: a black blotch 2-3 scales wide starting on and above scale 6 or 7 of lateral line series; and another horizontally-elongate, black, tear-shaped blotch about 1 1/2 scales high commencing on lateral line slightly anterior to or above anal-fin origin, on about lateral-line scale row 13 and continuing to caudal fin base (Ref. 55036).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Occurs in clear-water, rock and pebble substrate areas (Ref. 55036). Inhabits both slow-flowing pools and relatively fast-flowing areas (Ref. 55036).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01096 (0.00518 - 0.02319), b=2.99 (2.81 - 3.17), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.1 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
