Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7. Diagnosed from all other species of the genus Rhinogobius by the unique combination of the following characters: second dorsal fin with one spine and 8 rays; anal fin with one spine and 7 rays; pectoral fin with 16-17 rays; scale on longitudinal series 29-31; predorsal scales 3-4; vertebrae 10+16 (total 26); gill opening restricted, reaching ventrally near vertical midline of opercle; body side with 5-6 major patches of blackish-brown clusters of irregular small spots in male; caudal fin base with either an arrow-shaped black mark or a rounded black spot in male; dorsal part of snout with a pair of deep red stripes; cheek with an arrow-shaped infraorbital red to brown curve following with 4-5 parallel, oblique brown stripes in male; branchiostegal membrane grayish with 8-10 rounded red spots in male; and pectoral fin with semicircular creamy yellow background, and a median orange spot and vertical orange bar on lower half (Ref. 79879).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits shallow riffles with depth 20-40 cm, substratum of small pebbles and slow to moderate water flow (Ref. 79879).

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=0.00871 (0.00395 - 0.01919), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, 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 (10 of 100) .
