Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Vertebrae: 38. Distinguished from other species of the Roeboides guatemalensis-group by the number of perforated scales on the lateral line (83-100), body depth (31.8-36.1%), predorsal distance (49.1-51.9%), number of scale rows above the lateral line (20-22), scale rows around the caudal peduncle (27-30), scale rows below the lateral line (20-24), and the shape of the humeral spot (slightly rounded extending over 5-7 horizontal rows of scales and 5-8 vertical rows and with tenuous, short extension on the anterodorsal portion).

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=0.01096 (0.00355 - 0.03388), b=3.09 (2.83 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.6 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) .
