Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 11; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 8; Vertebre: 39. Diagnosis: This species differs from all other small species of African barbs by its very slender caudal peduncle; it is distinguished from the great majority of small African barbs by its exceptionally well developed sensory papillae or pitline organelles which cover most of the head in both sexes; similar pit lines occur on the scales covering the body; males differ from those of most other species of African barbs of similar size in having the rostrum and dorsal surface of the head covered with numerous breeding tubercles (Ref. 85567).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Found in very swift water, with bottom of coarse gravel and smooth water-worn stones (Ref. 85567).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00309 - 0.02951), b=3.01 (2.76 - 3.26), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649):   (0 of 100) .
