Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Siluriformes (Catfish) > Pimelodidae (Long-whiskered catfishes)
Etymology: Pimelabditus: Derived from Pimelodus, a genus of catfish, and from Latin word abditus, meaning hidden.;  moli: Named after Dr. Jan Mol for his contributions to the knowledge of Suriname’s fishes.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 14.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 83450)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 46 - 47. Distinguished with the following three apomorphic anatomical complexes: 1.) mouth ventral and transverse, supported by reoriented, much expanded premaxillae and foreshortened mandibles; premaxillae and dentaries densely covered with robust, needle-like teeth arranged in a steeply-descending, antero-posterior size series. 2.) lateral margins of orbit and otic region elevated with textured ridges developed from the frontal, sphenotic and pterotic bones surrounding the supraorbital, otic and postotic lateralis sensory canals. 3.) Interorbital septum severely compressed as thin, apparently median, bony sheet. Among Pimelodidae, it shares apomorphic features, placing it near the diverse Calophysus-Pimelodus clade (Ref. 83450).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [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 body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
