Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal soft rays: 5 - 6; Vertebrae: 28. Pseudotothyris janeirensis is distinguished from all congeners by possessing dorsal-fin spinelet (vs. absent); transverse dark saddles on the dorsum absent (vs. present); subocular cheek plate always absent (vs. generally present); and odontodes on lateral plates aligned in well-defined series (vs. randomly distributed). It can be diagnosed from Pseudotothyris obtusa by having abdomen almost entirely naked, except for one to three lateral abdominal plates and one to two preanal plates (vs. abdomen partially or totally covered by scattered plates); 31-35 teeth on upper pharyngeal toothplate (vs. 20-30); and 18-23 teeth on ceratobranchial 5 (vs. 12-15 ). It differs differs from Pseudotothyris ignota by having the anterior margin of snout completely covered by odontodes (vs. anterior margin of snout with an odontode-free band) (Ref. 116384).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from a lentic environment, regionally known as açude, a kind of water reservoir. It is uncommon for Pseudotothyris and for the majority of the members of Hypoptopomatinae to occur in this type of habitat (Ref. 116384).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00238 - 0.02312), b=3.03 (2.78 - 3.28), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.0   ±0.1 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) .
