Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Anal soft rays: 12 - 13; Vertebrae: 35. Glyptothorax mibangi is distinguished from all other species of Glyptothorax in the Ganga-Brahmaputra and Barak- Surma-Meghna basins by the following combination of characters: an obtuse, leaf-shaped thoracic adhesive apparatus with a spindle-shaped median depression, skin ridges present over entire apparatus, including the depressed region; ventral surface of pectoral spine and first pelvic-fin ray non-plaited; body depth 10.4-13.5% SL; caudal-peduncle depth 6.8-8.3% SL; snout length 52.9-58.6% HL; and the first branchial arch with 2+7 gill rakers (Ref. 102623).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in a fast flowing hill stream with a substrate consisted of boulders, cobble, pebbles and sand. The stream substrate is dominated by cobbles (Ref. 102623).

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=0.00692 (0.00313 - 0.01531), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), 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):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
