Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Vértebra: 18 - 19. Relatively low scute numbers (dorsal/ventral row, 23-24/20-21, pre-adipose scutes 2-4, usually 3), series of 4-6 distinct spots or a continuous midlateral band along the middle of the side instead of 2-3 large dark blotches; dorsal and pectoral fins not elongated in either sex; distinct stripes in dorsal and caudal fins (Ref. 52874).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Usually occurs in areas with sandy bottom, bank vegetation entering water or with marginal aquatic plants, dark, clear or slightly turbid water and limited associated fauna (Ref. 52874). Mimicked by Otocinclus mimulus; (Ref. 52874). Mimicry is unusual because the two species occupy different microhabitats and it is hypothesized to operate with a primarily visual predator moving between the microhabitats, tentatively identified as the cichlid Crenicichla lepidota (Ref. 52874).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01585 (0.00657 - 0.03821), b=2.99 (2.79 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
