Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Presence of a black stripe running from head to an enlarged blotch at caudal-fin base, not extending onto the fin itself; 10 predorsal scales; large maxillary and rostral barbels; 18-20 gill rakers on first arch (Ref. 12693).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs usually in large rivers with turbid water, often found under floating houses, logs, boats (Ref. 43281). Found at bottom depths of rivers. Probably moves into the floodplains during high water periods and may spawn there. Feeds on algae, periphyton, phytoplankton and some zooplankton. Used for prahoc or nuoc mam (Ref. 12693).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00427 (0.00208 - 0.00874), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.4   ±0.20 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
