Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Semotilus lumbee is similar to S. atromaculatus, but lacks discrete black spot at dorsal fin base (dusky spot may be present), more strongly bicolored (dark above, white below), has 9 rays on dorsal fin, larger scales (usually 18 scales around caudal). This species possesses 42-52 lateral line scales. Breeding males have red fins (Ref. 86798).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in flowing, sand-bottomed and gravel-bottomed pools and runs of headwaters, creeks, and small rivers (Ref. 5723).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00871 (0.00356 - 0.02129), b=3.05 (2.83 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (32 of 100) .
