Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Nemacheilidae ()
Etymology: Schistura: Greek, schizein = to divide + Greek, oura = tail; an allusion to forked caudal fins (Ref. 45335).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 39226)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 8. Distinguished by its color pattern: the bars in front of dorsal fin are conspicuously thinner than those behind, usually united in pairs (or more) at their upper extremity. This color pattern is shared with a few other species in area; S. poculi is distinguished from S. vinciguerrae by 8+7 branched caudal rays (versus 9+8), from S. mahnerti and S. bella by the absence of sexual dimorphism (both species have a well developed suborbital flap in males ) and by details of the color pattern (Ref. 39226).

Asia: Chao Phraya in Thailand (Ref. 12041), Mekong basin in Laos and Thailand, northern Mae Nam Ping basin in Thailand and Salween basin in Thailand and Myanmar (Ref. 43281).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in brooks and streams with swift current, among large pebbles, stones and boulders (Ref. 39226). Found in creeks and streams with moderate current and clear water (Ref. 43281). A 4.82 cm SL female contained nearly ripe ovulae, about 1.3 m diameter; when collected, a 5.22 cm SL female extruded yellow-orange ovulae; one of them still adheres to its genital opening (Ref. 39226).
