Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 9. Differs from its congeners in Indochina by the combination of the following characters: body with 7-12 regular dark bars; intestine with a wide loop, anteriorly reaching to stomach; inner rostral barbel reaching to or beyond corner of mouth; outer one clearly reaching beyond base of maxillary barbel; predorsal and dorsal part of body not darkened; predorsal bars meeting their homologues on back; a complete black bar at caudal-fin base; posterior bars not dissociated; long dorsal crests on caudal peduncle in most specimens ; pelvic fin origin below branched dorsal fin rays 1-2; lateral line complete; caudal peduncle 0.9-1.2 times longer than deep; depth of caudal peduncle 13.4-15.6% SL; median caudal-fin ray 72.1-85.7% of length of upper caudal-fin lobe; eye diameter 4.1% SL; lateral head length 102-119% HL; processus dentiformis pointed; a median incision in upper lip in most specimens (Ref. 40772).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits medium-sized rivers, with its highest densities immediately upstream of riffles with rocks and gravel substratum and low water velocities (Ref. 40772).

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=0.00617 (0.00292 - 0.01304), b=3.03 (2.84 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 vulnerability (16 of 100) .
