Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 15.3 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 55391)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal soft rays: 11 - 12; Vertebrae: 36 - 38. Distinguished from its congeners by possessing a unique combination of the following characters: 36-38 vertebrae, strongly elevated neural spines of the last 2-3 preanal and first 6-7 postanal vertebrae, length of adipose-fin base 26.8-30.4% SL, pelvic fins reaching the base of the first anal-fin ray and the presence of pale spots on the body (Ref. 55391).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in broad and shallow, well-oxygenated riffles with swift water velocities over rocky substrate (Ref. 55391). Feeds on aquatic insects (Ref. 55391). May spawn in upper reaches of rivers, then migrate downstream following spawning season (Ref. 55391).

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=0.00550 (0.00236 - 0.01278), b=3.13 (2.92 - 3.34), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.40 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (42 of 100) .
