Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 5; Anal soft rays: 3 - 4. This species is distinguished from Pseudexostoma yunnanensis by the following characters: posterior margin of lower lip with 3 notches, depth of middle one shallower than lateral ones (vs. same depth), length of 2 smaller median lobes of lower lip longer than lateral lobes (vs. the same length); pelvic fin i, 3-4 (vs. i, 5); base of adipose fin longer, 36.1-46.0% SL (vs. 28.8-39.8); caudal peduncle more slender, depth 4.2-6.9% SL, 20-33.7% in length of caudal peduncle (vs. 6.4-8.3 and 32.6-42.7); premaxillary tooth band with 16-18 teeth (vs. 18-22), it is divided into 2 and are isolated (vs. connected partially). The species differs from P. longipterus in having a shorter pectoral fin 24.9-29.8% SL (vs. 30.1-31.3), pelvic fin 16.1-22.9% SL (23.1-24.3), and caudal fin 13.6-17.9% SL (vs. 18-19.6); smaller eyes and a narrower interorbital width, eye diameter 5.8-7.8% HL (vs. 8.2-10), interorbital width 19.7-24.7% HL (vs. 25.5-30.8) (Ref. 57980).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00447 (0.00170 - 0.01173), b=3.13 (2.90 - 3.36), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
