Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 5; Anal soft rays: 8 - 10; Vertebrae: 30 - 33. Diagnosed by the following characters: space between anterior nostril and base of nasal barbel about equal to nostril diameter; anterior and posterior nostrils relatively small with diameter less than that of eye; anterior nostril situated at end of short tube; jaws subequal (lip of upper jaw projecting past lower jaw); caudal fin emarginate (not strongly forked); eye dorsolateral, not protruding above head when viewed from side; large depression below eye; posterior edge of pectoral spine with 1-3 small serrae (much less than half width of spine); obvious concavity on top of head extending from anterior median fontanel to posterior median fontanel with body ridge along either side formed by medial edges of frontals and supraoccipitals; ridges converge posteriorly at elevated supraoccipital process (Ref. 75761).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits gravel-sandy run in a medium-sized turbid river with average width of 40 m (Ref. 75761).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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) .
