Etymology: Microglanis: Greek, mikros = small + Greek, glanis = a fish that can eat the bait without touching the hook; a cat fish (Ref. 45335);  leptostriatus: Derived from the Greek lepto (slender) and striatus (stripe), in reference to the distinct light transverse stripe in the nuchal region.

Freshwater; demersal.   Tropical

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Anal soft rays: 9 - 12. Distinguished from its congeners by the following combination of characters: light transverse stripe, situated in occipital region between the opercular openings, thin and sinuous, sometimes discontinuous; pale region below dorsal and adipose fins mottled with brown spots; dark stripe in the axis of gill filaments in alcohol preserved specimens. Differs further from Microglanis parahybae and Microglanis garavelloi, the closest species geographically, by the following combination of characters: longer head length (28.3-32.1% SL vs. 25.5-28.5% and 25.2-30.2, respectively), shorter dorsal spine length (11.7-14.9% SL vs. 14.1-18.1% and 11.3-19.0), shorter pectoral spine length (12.5-19.7% SL vs. 19.4-22.7% and 18.5-26.2) (Ref. 58766).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical 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 BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 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 (10 of 100) .
