Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species differs from its congeners by having a unique color pattern of males: anterior third of body light brown, posterior two-thirds of body dark blue, almost black dorsal region, with rows of bright blue spots, relatively large size, with about half the diameter of the pupil. It differs from all its congeners, except S. filamentosus, by having pelvic-fin bases separated by an interspaced (vs. pelvic-fin bases in contact), tip of dorsal and anal fins in males with long filamentous rays (vs. absence of filaments, or presents only on dorsal fin in S. semiocellatus and S. inaequipinnatus, or presents only on anal fin in S. chacoensis), and presence (vs. absence) of contact organs on scales of flank in males (Ref. 93219).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The locality where the species occurs lies at the plateau area (316 m.a.s.l.), just southwest of Llanos de Mojos, which occupy much of the río Mamoré basin. Water temperature at the surface of the pool was 31ºC, at 1 meter depth was 22ºC, and at the marginal area of the pool, at 15 cm depth, was 35ºC. Only small specimens of Trigonectes sp. were collected syntopically in marginal areas, while specimens of Simpsonichthys brousseaui were collected in the deepest areas, at about 1 m deep. The pool has dark water, pH 6.8 and water hardness 80 ppm (Ref. 93219).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00397 - 0.01999), b=3.14 (2.94 - 3.34), 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 (10 of 100) .
