Etymology: Herichthys: Greek, eri = very, a lot + Greek, ichthys = fish (Ref. 45335);  tepehua: Name derived from the Nahuatl language meaning 'the ones who possess the mountains.' It refers to the remaining, as of the 1990 Mexico census, 10,573 members of the indigenous Tepehua ethnic group and their language, spoken in eastern Mexico in the states of Veracruz, Hidalgo, and Puebla.

Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 15 - 17; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 10-12; Spine anali 4-6; Raggi anali molli: 8 - 10. Herichthys tepehua is distinguished from H. deppii by having longer head (mean 37% SL, SD 2% SL vs. mean 35% SL, SD 1% SL), shorter distance from the anal fin origin to the hypural base (mean 39% SL, SD 2% SL vs. 42% SL , SD 1% SL), a larger eye (mean 26% HL, SD 3% vs. mean 24% HL, SD 2% HL). It can be diagnosed from H. carpintis in that it has a longer anal fin origin-hypural base distance (mean 39%, SD 2% vs. mean 38%, SD 2%) in SL; deeper cheeks (mean 32%, SD 4% vs. mean 28%, SD 4%) and longer snout (mean 39%, SD 4% vs. mean 37%, SD 3%) all in HL. It also differs from other congeners by the following autapomorphies: 2 conspicuous blue/ green parallel markings on the sides of the cheeks extending from the lip fold to the orbit of the eye. Ground color is blue-green. It shares with H. deppii the absence of iridescent spots/pearls on the body (Ref. 99935).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02042 (0.00919 - 0.04539), b=3.12 (2.93 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
