Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Lower lip continuous, with two median lobes along its posterior margin, separated by a median furrow (Ref. 43281). No papilla on lips. One pair of short maxillary barbels. Anus close to ventral-fin base than to anal-fin base. Body with eight rounded dusky blotches along lateral line (Ref. 12819). Mouth inferior; dorsal with convex distal margin; several vertical rows of black dots on caudal (Ref. 43281).

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Asia: originally eastern China, Korea and Japan. Introduced in the Mekong basin (Ref. 43281). Recorded from Tedzhen River basin in Turkmenistan (Ref. 39702).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit shallow zones of lentic rivers and lakes with sandy or muddy bottoms (Ref. 12819).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

The male builds a nest 12-43 cm in diameter on the bottom of the river, at a depth of 8-34 cm, and broods over the spawn. 1,711 eggs were found in a single nest (Ref. 1441).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00776 (0.00479 - 0.01258), b=3.19 (3.05 - 3.33), based on LWR estimates for species & Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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 (33 of 100) .
