Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cyprinodontiformes (Rivulines, killifishes and live bearers) > Rivulidae (Rivulines)
Etymology: Rivulus: Latin, rivus = stream (Ref. 45335);  berovidesi: Named in honor to Professor Vicente Berovides Alvarez at the Faculty of Biology, Universidad de la Habana, Cuba in recognition of his life-long dedication and contribution to train several generations of new researchers in biological sciences (Ref. 101368).

Freshwater; benthopelagic; pH range: ? - 7.5; depth range 0 - 1 m (Ref. 101368).   Tropical; ? - 24°C

Central America: known only from Sierra de Cajalbana and Rio Camarones, Pinar del Rio province, Cuba (Ref. 101368).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 3.8 cm male/unsexed; (Ref. 101368); 3.8 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-9; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 8 - 11. Diagnosis: both males and females are readily distinguished from Rivulus cylindraceus by the presence of a dark lateral band situated longitudinally along the lateral line, extended from the posterior margin of the eye to the base of the caudal fin; dorsal fin slightly shifted to the caudal peduncle in relation to the origin of anal fin (1–3mm) when compared to Rivulus cylindraceus; frontal scalation pattern in Rivulus berovidesi sp. n. is d-type vs. e-type pattern in Rivulus cylindraceus (Ref. 101368).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits small mountain streams with bottom substrate basically composed by stones, sand and dead leaves; no aquatic vegetation in the area (Ref. 101368).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01175 (0.00449 - 0.03072), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), 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) .
