Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Stenolicmus ix can be distinguished from S. sarmientoi by the length of the nasal barbels, reaching the base of the first opercular odontodes (vs. reaching anterior margin of eyes); length of maxillary barbels reaching posterior margin of opercular odontode plate (vs. reaching posterior margin of interopercular odontode plate); seven well-developed opercular odontodes (vs. six); seven well-developed interopercular odontodes (vs. five or six); pelvic fin rays, i+4 (vs. iv); color pattern of posterior region of trunk composed of agglomerated chromatophores forming circular patches twice the diameter of the eye (vs. without circular patches twice the diameter of the eye); large eyes with 11.8% HL (vs. 6%); caudal peduncle depth, 11.6% SL (vs. 8.5–9.5%); absence of dark bar at the base of the caudal fin (vs. presence of dark bar); head length, 17.9% SL (vs. 14.9–15.1%); and unbranched rays of caudal fin long, reaching distal margin of fin (vs. rays short, not reaching half the length of caudal fin) (Ref. 86403).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 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) .
