Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 35 - 36. This species is distinguished from other congeners from the Ganga-Brahmaputra basin and its adjacent basins by the combination of the following characters: 3-4 rows of black spots horizontally across dorsal-fin; 5-7 more or less organized rows of black spots on rays vertically across caudal-fin; slightly emarginated caudal-fin with 8+8 branched rays; 20-30 narrow black bars on the body; incomplete lateral line extending up to vertical through pelvic-fin origin, with 26-35 pores; males with a sub-orbital flap; and intestine looped behind the stomach (Ref. 94258).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits small pool with slow-flowing water and substrate composed of sand, gravel and rocks. Occurs in association with Exostoma cf. barakensis, Garra spp. and Lepidocephalichthys guntea. A female measuring 7.56 cm SL contained ovulae 0.8-1.2 mm in diameter (Ref. 94258).

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=0.00851 (0.00379 - 0.01909), b=2.93 (2.74 - 3.12), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 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 (21 of 100) .
