Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-6; Anal spines: 0; Vertebrae: 30 - 32. Diagnosis: labial disk rounded and moderately developed, bearing very small barbels; premaxillary teeth large, arranged in 3-4 rows; mandibular teeth numbering 8+8 to 10+10, usually arranged in 2 rows; caudal peduncle relatively deep; caudal fin weakly forked, with rounded lobes, lower slightly longer than upper; apparently no sexual dimorphism, but all individuals so far examined seemed to be immature; eyes small (Ref. 57223). Coloration: live specimens: 3 very well defined black vertical bars; dorsal area from head to dorsal-fin origin, or to first vertical bar, yellow-orange to brown-orange, depending on individuals; light areas of body and of dorsal, adipose and caudal fins bright yellow or even lemon-coloured; pectorals, pelvics and anal fin pale yellow; faint dark cross-bars on central part of pectoral fins; anterior parts of adipose and anal fins marked with black dots; caudal fin with 4 yellow spots underlined with black; belly beige or whitish (Ref. 57223).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this 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) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
