Morphology | Morphometrics
Paracanthocobitis phuketensis can be diagnosed from all its congeners by combination of the following characters: lateral line incomplete, ending near dorsal-fin insertion; dorsal fin with 9½-10½ branched rays; usually absence of axillary pelvic lobe, occasionally rudimentary; series of black blotches, sometimes overlain with faint dusky stripe along side of body not obscuring lateral blotches, ending near caudal fin; circular black spot on upper margin of caudal-fin base; black pigment not extending from black blotches along side of body onto base of pectoral fin; absence of marmorated pattern anterior to dorsal-fin origin; dorsal saddles longer than interspaces, frequently connecting to lateral blotches; upper caudal fin with 7-8 branched rays (Ref. 117351).

= 0.5005 [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. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
