Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal soft rays: 8. Distinguished from congeners by its unique color pattern consisting of 21-25 dark brown tiger-stripe bars on side of body, bars not reaching venter. Other diagnostic characters include: head short, 4.1-5.4 times in standard length; interorbital width 48.1% HL (10.1% SL); pelvic-fin length 97.0% HL (20.3% SL), approximately equal to head length; length of caudal peduncle 44.8% HL (9.3% SL); dorsal fin with 4 simple rays and 6½ or 7½ branched rays (Ref. 93077).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a stream near a water fall and terraced rice fields with fast flowing, clear water, width of 3-4 m and depth of 3.75 cm. Occurs over substrates of mixed gravel, mud and sand. Other species encountered at the collection site include Schistura breviceps, S. pridii, S. spilota, Oreoglanis siamensis, Devario sp., Scaphiodonichthys burmanicus and Channa gachua (Ref. 93077).

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=0.00617 (0.00288 - 0.01322), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), 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 (14 of 100) .
