Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10; Vertebrae: 31 - 33. The following combination of characters diagnosed this species from all its congeners: pored lateral line scales from the supracleithrum to the hypural joint 33-36; vertebrae 33-35; greatest body depth 33.5-39.3% of SL; distance from the snout to the anal-fin origin 76.2-83.4% of SL; least depth of the caudal peduncle 11.7-13.8% of SL; length of the postorbital portion of the head 33.8-41.5% of HL; interorbital width 32.8-43.8% of HL; presence in adults of a field of scales with a parabolic margin extending onto each lobe of the caudal fin; absence in adults of prominent dark stripes or spots on the body or a dark spot at the base of the caudal fin; and absence of a patch of dark pigmentation on the dorsal or adipose fins (Ref. 85320).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in small rivers with relatively slow currents and somewhat turbid water and also in shallow areas of a reservoir along the Rio Gongogi. These areas have muddy substrates to some degree (Ref. 85320).
