Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species can be distinguished from its congeners by this set of characters: higher number of lateral line scales 50-54 (vs. 30-50, except B. terrabensis with 47-54); higher count of scales between the lateral line and the dorsal fin origin 9-11 (vs. 4-9) and between the lateral line and pelvic fin origin 8-10 (vs. 2-8); more scales between lateral line and anal fin origin 8-10 (vs. 2-8, except B. terrabensis with 6-9); more predorsal scales 16-18 (vs. 9-16, except B. huilae with 14-19 scales, B. galvisi with 12-17 and B. tolimae with 13-17) (Ref. 83586).

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=0.01259 (0.00532 - 0.02981), b=3.06 (2.85 - 3.27), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
