Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-6; Vertebrae : 31 - 32. Diagnosis: Labial disk moderately developed and rounded, covered with large papillae; mandibular barbels little developed, auxiliary barbels absent; premaxillary teeth large and arranged in 3-4 rows; mandibular teeth numbering 4+4 to 5+5, sometimes even 6+6; dorsal fin with 5-6 branched rays, the 6th soft ray always slender, very close to 5th; adipose fin short, beginning slightly ahead of anal-fin origin; caudal peduncle rather elongate, but less so than in C. batesii ; caudal fin deeply forked, with distinctly pointed lobes, lower lobe longer than upper; usually a longitudinal black band on one or both lobes of caudal fin; eyes moderately developed; sexual dimorphism absent or weak (Ref. 57223 ). Colouration: body with 3 more or less well defined dark vertical bars separated by paler areas; lower caudal-fin lobe, and sometimes also the upper, with a more or less distinct black band (Ref. 57223 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00268 - 0.01487), b=3.09 (2.88 - 3.30), 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. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) . Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Unknown .
