Etymology: Glyptothorax: Greek, glyptes = carver + Greek, thorax = breast (Ref. 45335);  filicatus: The specific name is fom the Latin 'filicatus' (adorned with ferns), in allusion to the frond-like arrangement of the skin ridges on the thoracic adhesive apparatus of this species..   More on author: Freyhof.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 9.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 79574)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Anal soft rays: 14; Vertebrae: 38. Differs from all Indochinese congeners by the possession of a diverging pattern of striae running along the edges of the central depression in the thoracic adhesive apparatus. Other unique combination of characters useful to distinguish this species include dorsal-spine length 13.7-15.1% SL, pectoral-fin length 21.5-21.9% SL, length of adipose-fin base 13.3-15.0% SL, depth of caudal peduncle 8.4-8.8% SL, body depth at anus 15.1-16.0% SL, snout length 48.0-52.9% HL, eye diameter 8.9-9.9% HL, anterior nuchal plate strongly demarcated in beige and caudal peduncle with a pale vertical band (Ref. 79574).

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=0.00724 (0.00333 - 0.01574), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-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):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
