Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 9. Distinguished from its congeners by the unique combination of the following characters: dorsal fin rays 3+7, anal fin rays 3+6, pectoral fin rays 1+14; lateral-line scales 39-41, predorsal scales 12-13; body rather slender, the transverse rows of papillae on snout loosely arranged and very long barbels over 2/3 of eye diameter and body with longitudinal grayish and golden stripes; dorsal side scattered with few irregular black spots; a longitudinal row of grayish black blotches along lateral body; all fins unmarked (Ref. 57944).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00676 (0.00419 - 0.01091), b=3.17 (3.03 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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) .
