soft rays: 11 - 13. Distinguished from Barilius infrafasciatus and Barilius bendelisis by the presence of a black round spot at the caudal base, by the black dorsal rays and transparent dorsal membranes, by the posterior position of dorsal origin being midway between upper angle of gill aperture and caudal base or slightly nearer to the latter (Ref. 39388).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00708 (0.00316 - 0.01588), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.4 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 (21 of 100) .
