Etymology: Pethia: Pethia is the generic vernacular name for small cyprinids in Sinhala.;  macrogramma: Named from the Greek makros (long), and gramme (line), in reference to the complete or almost complete lateral line, in constrast to most other members of the Puntius conchonius group, which have an abbreviated, short lateral line..   More on author: Kullander.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75627)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 8. Belongs to the Puntius conchonius group, distinguished by the combination of the following characters: barbels absent, lateral line complete or almost complete, a minute humeral mark present on and below lateral line scale 3, and transverse scale count ½4/1/4½ (vs. ½4/1/3½ or ½3/1/4½ in other species of Puntius conchonius group). This is similar to Puntius stoliczkanus, but humeral mark much smaller (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) .
