Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal soft rays: 4 - 6; Vertebrae: 36 - 38. Belongs to the Oreoglanis siamensis species group as it possesses a distinct median notch on the posterior margin of the lower lip. Can be distinguished from other members of the genus in having a combination of the following characters: short nasal barbel reaching to midway between its base and anterior orbital margin, maxillary barbel with rounded tip, length of adipose-fin base 30.7-38.1 % SL, caudal peduncle length 19.2-24.9 % SL, eye diameter 8.9-15.3 % HL, and a lunate caudal fin having upper and lower first principal rays of approximately equal length (Ref. 83406).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in rocky, fast-flowing streams (Ref. 83406).

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=0.00589 (0.00293 - 0.01185), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), 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 (33 of 100) .
