Etymology: Betadevario: Beta-, the second letter in Greek alphabet, also representing the numeral 2, and used in the meaning of second, and also the name of Beta Mahatvaraj who made great efforts to make the material available for this study; and -devario. With reference to its similarity to the genus Devario, in the meaning of second Devario.;  ramachandrani: Named after Professor Alappat Ramachandran, School of Industrial Fisheries, Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kochi, in recognition of his contributions to fisheries and sea food production management and studies on indigenous ornamental fishes..   More on author: Kullander.

Freshwater; benthopelagic; depth range 0 - ? m (Ref. 84468).   Tropical; 19°C - ?

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal soft rays: 14 - 15; Vertebrae: 35 - 36. For field identification purposes, it is easily distinguished from all species of Devario by its color pattern including a wide light horizontal band along the middle of the side bordering a wide dark lateral band along the abdominal side, and the long rostral and maxillary barbels (Ref. 84468).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=-2.00000 (nan - nan), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this BS (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 (14 of 100) .
