Etymology: Glyptothorax: Greek, glyptes = carver + Greek, thorax = breast (Ref. 45335);  coracinus: The specific name is from the Greek 'korakinos' (like a raven), in reference to the dark coloration of this species.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 78392)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14; Vertebrae: 36 - 37. Differs from all other species of the genus Glyptothorax, except for Glyptothorax siamensis, by the possession of a blackish brown body with indistinct pale longitudinal stripes on the lateral line and mid-dorsal regions. Can be differentiated from Glyptothorax siamensis in having a smaller eye with eye diameter 6.3-7.2% HL (vs. 7.5-11.2) and a thoracic adhesive apparatus with less convex lateral edges and absence of anastomosing striae (vs. presence). Distinguished from other congeners by the following characters: caudal peduncle length 18.6-21.0% SL; caudal peduncle depth 7.9-9.4% SL; vertebrae 36-37; tubercles on the dorsal surface of the head with a single, median ridge; pale markings on the nuchal pale absent; length of adipose-fin base 12.3-14.5% SL (Ref. 78392).

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   ±0.4 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 to moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
