Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 7-8; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 10 - 11; Vértebra: 35 - 37. Diagnosis: Congoglanis inga differs from C. sagitta in having a longer maxillary barbel, reaching well past vertical through anterior margin of orbit vs. not reaching to orbit; a deeper caudal peduncle, 7-8% of standard length vs. 6%; and less slender caudal peduncle, its depth 2.1-2.9 times in its length vs. 3.1-4.0; a longer pelvic fin, 22-25% of standard length vs. 19-21%; a more posteriorly placed anal fin, anal-fin origin approximately at tip of adpressed pelvic fin vs. origin well in advance of tip of adpressed pelvic fin; longer anal-fin rays, posterior rays of adpressed anal fin extend well past vertical through posterior limit of adipose fin vs. posterior rays extend to, rarely slightly beyond, vertical through posterior limit of adipose fin; and fewer vertebrae, 35-37 vs. 39-41 (Ref. 88958). It differs from C. alula in having a longer maxillary barbel, reaching well past vertical through anterior margin of orbit vs. not reaching to orbit; a shorter pelvic fin, 19-21% of standard length vs. 24-28%; a longer postorbital length, 32-35% of head length vs. 27-31%; a relatively wide interorbital width, 2 times eye-diameter vs. 1.5 times; and longer anal-fin rays, posterior rays of adpressed anal fin extend well past vertical through posterior limit of adipose fin vs. posterior rays extend to, rarely slightly beyond, vertical through posterior limit of adipose fin (Ref. 88958).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Medio, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo de 1.4-4.4 años (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (37 of 100) .
