Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10. Diagnosis: Pectoral rays 15. Numerous scales in lateral series 24-47; transverse back series 3-13; and transverse forward series 0-13; few scales in zigzag series 11-14. There is a long second dorsal fin in males and a long anal fin, a short peduncle, and a short preanal length. A first large longitudinal black band from mouth to pectoral fin and from base of pectoral fin to caudal fin, a second from eye to pectoral fin, a third one in predorsal area (Ref. 56794).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits clear, high gradient streams with rocky bottom. Occurs on the bottom of the river, on top of rocks, but also often seen swimming in open water in the current between rocks or in large pools (Ref. 56794).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
