Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 46 - 51. In Malay Peninsula, it is distinguished by its color pattern consisting of a more or less conspicuous mid-lateral series of irregular blotches, sometimes forming a mid-lateral stripe; back finely mottled, with a median row of large black saddles or any intermediate pattern; a vertical black blotch at caudal base; caudal mottled; median lobe of lower lip produced into a barbel.

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=0.00479 (0.00218 - 0.01050), b=3.11 (2.92 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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.
