soft rays: 6;
Vertebrae: 40 - 41. Dark band running across the anal fin, a lunate and uniformly dark caudal fin, a lower lip lacking a medial notch and with a fimbriated posterior margin, maxillary barbel with a rounded tip, length of caudal peduncle 19.0-22.6% SL, depth of caudal peduncle 2.6-3.2% SL, post-adipose distance 6.8-8.0% SL, eye diameter 10.5-12.1% HL, 12 principal caudal-fin rays (Ref. 49549).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00676 (0.00307 - 0.01489), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±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.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Moderate vulnerability (37 of 100) .
