Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 4.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 12693)
soft rays: 8. Distinguished from its only congener T. baenzigeri by having 12 1/2 branched dorsal rays (versus 9-10 1/2); anus situated under branched dorsal rays 6-7; distance from anus to anal fin origin less than length of base of dorsal fin (Ref. 39226). With a few large dark spots on a nearly white background (Ref. 12693).
Inhabits sandy-bottomed streams. Probably attains up to 4 cm (Ref. 12693).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.7500 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00692 (0.00327 - 0.01463), b=2.99 (2.82 - 3.16), 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 (10 of 100) .
