Etymology: Chiloglanis: Greek, cheilos = lip + Greek, glanis = a fish that can eat the bait without touching the hook; a cat fish (Ref. 45335);  mongoensis: The specific epithet refers to the Rio Mongo, a tributary to the Rio Wele in Equatorial Guinea, where the species is presumed endemic (Ref. 120898).

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 4-5; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Diagnosis: Chiloglanis mongoensis is readily distinguished from all other valid species of Chiloglanis with the exception of C. marlieri and C. harbinger in possessing 28-30 mandibular teeth in one row (Ref. 120898). Chiloglanis mongoensis is distinguished from C. marlieri in possessing a longer dorsal spine, 1.8 times into head length versus 3.1 in C. marlieri (Ref. 12898). It is distinguished from C. harbinger in having fewer premaxillary teeth, 99-116 versus 150-224, arranged in fewer rows, 4-5 versus 7; a longer dorsal spine, 9.0-9.7% of standard length versus 7.8-9.0%; a deeper body at anus, 14.0-16.0% of standard length versus 11.7-13.8%; a larger eye, 3.7-4.6% of standard length versus 2.9-3.5%; and a higher adipose fin, 2.6-3.9% of standard length versus 1.6-2.3% (Ref. 120898).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found where the Rio Mongo was shallow, substrate mostly sand and gravel, and there was little flow (Ref. 120898).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
