Etymology: ubirajarai: From the author, Wilson Costa: "the name ubirajarai is in honour of Ubirajara Martins, entomologist at Museu de Zoologia, Universidade de Sao Paulo, professor of principles of taxonomy, who was teacher and friend during my early formation in Systematics, providing great enthusiasm for studying taxonomy of killifishes about 30 years ago" (Ref. 92338).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Differs from all other species of the genus, except M. litteratus, by the presence of a short dark yellowish grey stripe on the caudal fin in females, connecting black caudal spot on the middle of the fin (vs. never a horizontal mark in this position) (Ref. 92338).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00417 (0.00174 - 0.01001), b=3.17 (2.96 - 3.38), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
