Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8 - 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. Distinguished from it closely related species Allomogurnda montana on the basis of the several morphometric and color pattern differences: caudal peduncle more slender, with depth ranging from12.2-13.2% of SL, average 12.5% (vs. 13.0-13.9%, average 13.35%); second dorsal fin base length 16.6-20.9% SL (vs. 19.1-22.2% of SL) and anal fin base length12.7-15.7% of SL (vs. 16.0-18.9% of SL); darker spotting on the body and fins ; distinct dark bands on the head (vs. indistinct orange bands) and a darkish upper pectoral fin base with a distinctive small white to yellow spot on the uppermost part; and melanophores on mouth floor (area directly under the free portion of the tongue) mainly confined to the anterior half of this region, with a large unpigmented area next to the tongue base (vs. liberally covered) (Ref. 77038).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in a flowing stream in an open rocky bed, with cobble, sand, gravel and rocky substrates. This fish is most common in sections protected from the main current (Ref. 77038).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00424 - 0.02467), b=3.06 (2.85 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.1 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 (11 of 100) .
