Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from by the following set of characters: with a pair of large conical tubercles at the tip of the snout, directed laterally; top and side of the snout (between the tip and the eye) with numerous tubercles, all conical, of various sizes; with a broad, contrasted dark brown to black midlateral stripe on a pale brown background and whitish to yellow lower half of flank; a red to black marginal or submarginal band along the upper and lower edges of the caudal fin; a single pair of barbels (maxillary); the pulvinus of the gular disc thin, flat, covering the posterior edge of the torus; no groove between the pulvinus and the labrum; lateral extremities of the torus continuous with the labrum and the labella; the labrum connected to the rostral cap by the labella (partly folded under the labrum); the torus, labella and labrum (sometimes also the anterior edge of the pulvinus) are entirely covered by small papillae; no subtoral fold and proboscis (Ref. 128869).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky bottoms in swiftly moving water of small and medium-sized streams. Feeds on periphyton, phytoplankton and some insects (Ref. 12693). usually abundant; the adults live in loose groups of 4-10 individuals while juveniles 3.0-4.0 cm SL may form loose schools of tens of individuals (Ref. 128869). Not fished commercially, but occasionally seen in the aquarium trade (Ref 12693).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00331 - 0.01740), b=3.05 (2.88 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  2.4   ±0.21 se; based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100).
