Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cyprinidae (Minnows or carps) > Danioninae
Etymology: Danio: Vernacular name fron India and Sri Lanka ;  absconditus: From the Latin adjective absconditus, meaning disguised, secret or hidden. Its application is inspired both by the color pattern, which strongly resembles that of barred species of Devario Bleeker and the relatively late discovery and recognition of the species.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-11; Anal soft rays: 16 - 18; Vertebrae: 35 - 37. Danio absconditus is distinguished from all congeners except D. feegradei by having a prominent elongate or round black spot at the base of the caudal fin (vs. absence; or minute and inconspicuous in D. jaintianensis, D. choprae and D. flagrans; or small, round and margined by a light zone in D. erythromicron), a small black or grey cleithral spot and a light (orange in life) spot immediately above cleithral spot (vs. absence; or present, large and not bordered by light spot in D. assamila, D. catenatus, D. concatenatus, D. dangila, D. sysphigmatus; or minute, not separated from P stripe and not associated with light spot in D. meghalayensis). It differs from all Danio except D. feegradei, D. assamila, D. catenatus, D. concatenatus, D. dangila, D. meghalayensis and D. sysphigmatus by complete lateral line (vs. abbreviated or absent) and 14 circumpeduncular scales (vs. 10-12). It can be separated from D. feegradei by the presence of about 7-11 distinct dark vertical stripes on abdominal sides (vs. absence), and absence of light dots along middle of side (vs. presence) (Ref. 106271).

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 (0.00322 - 0.01632), 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):  3.0   ±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 (12 of 100) .
