Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 25.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 6028)
Inhabits unshaded, rocky, mid-hill streams (Ref. 11966). Larger individuals form small groups of 5-10 fish, inhabiting relatively deep (1-5 m) rock pools at the bottom of cascades, usually sheltering behind boulders in very swift flow. Juveniles occur mainly in the shallow (< 1 m) areas of larger streams with sand or gravel substrates. Sympatric with Labeo fisheri over its known range.

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00309 - 0.02951), b=3.01 (2.76 - 3.26), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.9 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
