Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Siluriformes (Catfish) > Akysidae (Stream catfishes) > Parakysinae
Etymology: hypselurus: From the Greek hypselos for high and oura for tail, in reference to the relatively tall neural spines of the caudal vertebrae (Ref. 45707).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal.   Tropical

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 12.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 45707)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 5; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 10; Vertebrae: 42. Differentiated by its relatively tall neural spines in the caudal vertebrae, shorter caudal peduncle (26.0% SL versus 30.7-36.8), longer snout (35.5% HL versus 27.2-34.1), more wide-set eyes (interorbital distance 30.9% HL versus 27.2-34.1), fewer vertebrae (42 versus 44-45), and smooth (versus serrated) dorsal spine (Ref. 45707).
