Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays : 8. A member of the group of species with complete or nearly complete lateral line, 8 1/2 branched dorsal rays, 9+8 branched caudal rays and no sexual dimorphism. Can be distinguished by the following characters: caudal peduncle 1.10-1.44 times longer than deep, its length being 14.2-17.5% SL, 67-86% HL and its depth 11.5-13.2%SL, 52-62% HL; 8-11 bars; black basal caudal bar not reaching dorsal and ventral midlines, moderate keels on caudal peduncle, a median interruption in lower lip. Caudal fin emarginate (Ref. 39226 ). With slight depression at nape; 8-12 bars that turn into blotches on lateral line and saddle-markings dorsally; scales lacking on belly and on back between head and dorsal fin (Ref. 12693 ). Dorsal fin base with a black spot anteriorly, followed by an orange patch and a low elongate grey blotch (Ref. 43281 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabit small, shallow, high gradient streams with cobble or boulder substrates (Ref. 12693 ). A ripe female measuring 5.27 cm SL with ovulae 2.4 mm in diameter (Ref. 39226 ).

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=0.00617 (0.00255 - 0.01493), b=3.02 (2.84 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.0   ±0.3 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 to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
