Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Adults are distinguished from all other Indian and Sri Lankan Puntius by possessing unique color pattern: a black blotch 2-3 scales wide starting on and above scale 6 or 7 of lateral line series; and another horizontally-elongate, black, tear-shaped blotch about 1 1/2 scales high commencing on lateral line slightly anterior to or above anal-fin origin, on about lateral-line scale row 13 and continuing to caudal fin base (Ref. 55036).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [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):  2.8   ±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) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
