Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal-fin origin slightly in front of the pelvic-fin origin; a midlateral row of 13-30 (usually 20-25) conspicuous, black blotches; a row of 14-20 mid-dorsal blotches; irregular dots on the dorsal half of the body; a conspicuous roundish black spot at the upper extremity of the caudal-fin base and a fainter one at the lower extremity; snout length 2.1-2.7 times in head length (Ref. 27732). Eye in anterior half of head; 6 diffuse bars on caudal fin (Ref. 12693).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in upper parts of river basins, with slow to fast waters, on gravel and pebbles (Ref. 27732). Occurs over sandy bottoms in medium to large rivers. Feeds on benthic invertebrates. Not fished commercially (Ref. 12693).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00501 (0.00223 - 0.01124), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.37 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (18 of 100) .
