Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 85846)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 31 - 32. Can be diagnosed from all members of the Rasbora trifasciata-group by having male cephalic tubercles nodular with blunt tips and the base lower than the skin surface in a narrow pit. Other combination of characters useful to further distinguished from the other members of this group in northwestern Sumatra include the following: cranial superficial neuromasts having basal plates confluent with the skin surface with no peripheral structure surrounding them; first infraorbital (lachrymal) with a posterodorsal process and a concave dorsal margin; lachrymal region peripherally pigmented with an unpigmented central area; the dorsomedial branch of the supraorbital canal extending toward the posterior margin of the frontal; an axial streak extending anteriorly and terminating between the verticals through the dorsal-fin origin and the pelvic-fin insertion; the presence of cephalic tubercles only in males; a transverse scale count anterior to the dorsal-fin origin and pelvic-fin insertion of K4/1/2K; 12 scales around caudal peduncle; unpigmented opercular flap; a basal reticulation pattern comprising of networks of well-developed parenthesis-shaped bars on the midlateral surface of the body; a maximum vertical coverage of the basal reticulation by three and a half longitudinal scale rows; and pelvic-fin rays i,8 (Ref. 85846).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs sympatrically with Rasbora cf. sumatrana in the Seumayam River (Ref. 85846).

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=0.00724 (0.00324 - 0.01618), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 (12 of 100) .
