Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 32. This is a species of Clypeobarbus distinguished from all congenersby the presence of a well-defined lachrymal stripe running from the tip of the snout to the eye, and an elevated number of circumpeduncular scales (Ref. 79650). Small conical tubercules over upper and lower lip and posterior edge of rostral cap (Ref. 79650). Two pairs of barbels; anterior barbel small and feeble, not reaching base of posterior barbel; posterior barbel longer and more robust than anterior barbel, not reaching center of pupil (Ref. 79650). Scales radially striated; 26-27 in lateral line, and 1-2 on caudal fin base; 3.5/1/1.5 body rows; 12 circumpeduncular rows; 8-9 predorsal rows (Ref. 79650). Lateral line is complete (Ref. 79650). Dorsal fin with iv,8 rays; positioned midway between snout and caudal-fin base; origin anterior to pelvic-fin insertion; last unbranched ray simple and smooth (Ref. 79650). Anal fin with iii,5 rays (Ref. 79650). In alcohol, body pale creamy white (Ref. 79650). All scales bordered with black melanophores; pigmentation most intense around lateral line scales (Ref. 79650). Prominent dark oblique bar situated posterodorsal to cleithrum (Ref. 79650).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00533 - 0.02363), b=2.98 (2.81 - 3.15), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
