Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 8. Belongs to the Puntius conchonius species group distinguished by the following combination of characters: absence of barbels, absence of humeral mark; presence of prominent dark blotch anteriorly on caudal peduncle, chiefly on scales 17-18 or 18-19 in lateral row; dorsal fin in males with two rows of dark blotches and dark margin, blotches anteriorly on fin most prominent; anal and pelvic fins immaculate; lateral line short, on 6-11 scales; scales in lateral row 20-23. Differs from similar species Puntius macrogramma, and Puntius stoliczkanus by having short lateral line (vs. complete or almost complete) and the absence of humeral mark; from Puntius conchonius by having larger caudal peduncle blotch and dark color of dorsal fin in two rows of spots crossing middle of fin (vs. forming a dark marginal blotch) (Ref. 75627).

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=0.01349 (0.00511 - 0.03560), b=3.01 (2.78 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±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 (10 of 100) .
