Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5; Vertebrae: 41 - 43. Head conical, wide, slightly flattened. Barbel long, reaching beyond posterior edge of eye, caudal peduncle low, epithelial crests on dorsal scales absent; supraorbital seismosensory canal not connected with infraorbital one (Ref. 28796); and anal fin with 5½ branched rays (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits high-gradient stretches of large rivers with fast (not turbulent) current and gravel or sand bottom. Nocturnal, found near shores at night on mud or sand bottom. Appears to spawn early and have a short spawning period. Only large juveniles were encountered in July (Ref. 59043).

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=0.00575 (0.00268 - 0.01234), b=3.13 (2.95 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
