Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 41 - 47;
Vertebrae: 44 - 46. Compared to L. hexanema, this species differs in having a longer anal fin base (38.6-41.5% SL versus 34.8-37.9) with more anal fin rays (41-47 versus 36-39), a smaller eye (eye diameter 20.1-23.6% HL versus 28.6-38.5) and a larger interorbital distance (47.0-55.6% HL versus 37.9-47.3) (Ref. 39209).
Inhabit large rivers with turbid and slow or standing waters (Ref. 43281). Feed on fishes and zooplankton (Ref. 12693). Oviparous, eggs are unguarded (Ref. 205).
