Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from all congeners except Rineloricaria maquinensis by its unique pattern of abdominal plates: abdomen almost completely naked, except for a single preanal complex of plates, connected to the lateral abdominal plates by one or two small squarish platelets at the base of pelvic-fin spine (vs. squarish platelets absent in specimens with naked or almost naked abdomens). Can be differentiated from Rineloricaria maquinensis by the following body proportions: longer predorsal length (31.2-35.0 vs. 28.2-31.5% SL), shorter postanal length (52.3-56.4 vs. 55.5-62.5% SL), longer abdominal length (15.2-17.8 vs. 13.6-15.5% SL), wider cleithral width (16.8-19.6 vs. 13.7-16.5% SL), and a deeper head (43.2-64.8 vs. 37.4-43.9% HL). Differs further Rineloricaria aequalicuspis by its asymmetrical tooth cusps (vs. almost symmetrical cusps) (Ref. 75788).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in slow to fast flowing watercourses, with clear or brown water and usually on rocky bottom (Ref. 75788).

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=0.00355 (0.00156 - 0.00807), b=3.14 (2.95 - 3.33), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.5   ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
