Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 3; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 7; Spine anali 3; Raggi anali molli: 5. Distinguished from all congeners by the following combination of characters: lack of Gambetta's pigmentation pattern; sexual dimorphism color pattern consisting of 17-20 irregular blotches on the dorsum in male and 13 oval blotches on the dorsum and the blotches extending trangle-shape on the dorsolateral sides in females; 11-13 irregular vertical elongated v-shaped blotches along midlateral lines, and between them more then 20 vertical bars in males and less than 20 in females; dorsal and caudal fins with 4-5 striations; one slender and long finger-shaped lamina circularis at the base of the secondary ray of the male pectoral fins, the second ray is elongated nearly filamentous; scales large, vertical elongated and oval, with a large focal area, 26-30 radial grooves; mental lobes undeveloped, two lower lip pointed not ending in filiform tip; barbels short, barble length equal to or shorter than eye diameter; suborbital spine of the prcessus latero-caudalis less than one-third of the processus medio-caudalis length (Ref. 93349).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00246 - 0.01227), b=3.05 (2.88 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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 (24 of 100) .
