This species can be diagnosed from all other known congeners by the combination of the following characters: body with several bands, broader than interspaces on caudal peduncle region, absent in the predorsal section; 3 pairs of barbels, almost as long as eye diameter; lateral line complete; caudal fin rounded with 2 short whitish bands; and black spot present at the upper extremity of caudal-fin base (Ref. 95217).
Occurs in streams with pebbly bottom (Ref. 41236).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5039 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00708 (0.00339 - 0.01477), b=3.01 (2.84 - 3.18), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.8 ±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.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
