Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-8; Anal soft rays: 7 - 9. Corydoras knaacki is distinguished from its congeners by having the following combination of characters: a longitudinal black stripe along midline of flank; short mesethmoid, with anterior portion smaller than 50% of the bone length; serrations on posterior margin of pectoral spine directed towards the tip of the spine; dorsal fin with the region of the first branched ray, including membrane, with black pigmentation, the remaining areas with irregular black blotches; lacking a vertically elongated black blotch across the eyes; snout with conspicuously rounded moderately-developed black spots; and ventral expansion of infraorbital 1 moderately developed (Ref. 121196).

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=0.01585 (0.00657 - 0.03821), b=2.99 (2.79 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 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) .
