Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Vertebrae: 39 - 40. Diagnosed from other members of the genus in possessing nine proximal pterygiophores (including the terminal piece) on dorsal fin. Differs further from Hemibrycon species from the upper and middle Cauca rivers by having 43-46 pored lateral-line scales (Ref. 83513).

South America: Los Ramirez and Italica Creeks in the Risaralda River system, upper Cauca, Colombia.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits creeks with brown water and substrate of stone and sand. The creeks are characterized by having 18.3-20.3°C surface temperature, 7.6-9.7 mg/l dissolved oxygen and 104-127% saturation, pH 8, and 2-4 m width (Ref. 83513).

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), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  0.0   ±0.0 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) .
