Etymology: weitzmani: weiztmani is an eponym for Stanley H. Weiztman, in recognition of his many contributions to Neotropical ichthyology, particularly his work on the ichthyofauna of southern Brazil and the taxonomy of the genus Jenynsia.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

South America: currently known only from its type locality in eastern Santa Catarina State, an unnamed tributary of the rio Pinheiros in the upper rio Tubarão drainage near Anitápolis, Brazil (Ref. 45800).

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 7.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 80013); 7.0 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 9; Vertebrae: 33. Possess a tubular gonopodium with shortened second, fourth and fifth anal fin rays, an enlarged seventh middle anal fin radial in males and females, and an elongate dorsoposterior process of the lacrimal. Branchiostegal rays: 5. Distinguished from other Plesiojenynsia by the following combination of characters: a single midlateral stripe without associated dorsolateral or ventrolateral stripes or blotches in adults; a terminal to slightly oblique mouth; fewer than 13 gillrakers; and absence of the first mandibular-canal pore.

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=0.01259 (0.00536 - 0.02954), b=3.05 (2.84 - 3.26), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±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 (25 of 100) .
