Etymology: Rasbora: Rasbora, an Indian word for a fish, also used in Malay peninsula;  arundinata: The specific name, arundinata, an adjective from the Latin ‘arundo’, meaning reed, refers to the shape of the black midlateral stripe of the species appearing like a reed leaf.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 33 - 34. Can be diagnosed from other species of Rasbora in having a unique black midlateral stripe overall forming a reed-leaf-like profile, consisting of the following: a subdorsal blotch that starts tapering anteriorly from the vertical through the dorsal-fin origin where its dorsal margin appears to be slightly crested, and the tapering extends further anteriorly reaching mid-humeral region via a long pointed anterior tip; a midhumeral diffuse patch in which melanophores concentrate right below the subdorsal blotch and extends anteriorly in a somewhat diffuse fashion to reach the midhumeral region; and a posterior-portion stripe that terminates posteriorly at the area immediately dorsal to the anterior apex of the triangular basicaudal blotch (Ref. 94947).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in various types of habitats such as gravel-bottomed mountain streams, moderate-flowing turbid rivers, and muddy backwater pools. Occurs sympatrically with Rasbora api, R. kluetensis (only in the Kluet River), R. jacobsoni, and R. truncata (only in the Alas River) (Ref. 94947).

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):  3.2   ±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 (22 of 100) .
