Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10. Lentipes mekonggaensis can be diagnosed by the following characters: pectoral fin with 19-20 rays; second dorsal and anal fins I10, and 28-33 lateral scales; urogenital papilla retractable into a sheath-like groove and without lobes or other expanded tissue. Male is characterised by few tricuspid teeth in the upper jaw (10-16), ctenoid scales on anterior body region strongly ossified, the base of the first dorsal fin not reaching the base of the second dorsal fin origin, and a specific body color, with a bright red head, a red band on caudal peduncle and orange dorsal fins (Ref. 97410).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a swift, clear high gradient stream with a rocky and boulder-strewn bottom at the edge of oil palm plantation (388 m above sea level). Presumed to be amphidromous as the other members of the subfamily (Ref. 97410).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
