Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 9. Lentipes ikeae can be disgnosed by the following characters: 16-17 pectoral rays; second dorsal and anal fins with I,9; 23-35 lateral scales; urogenital papilla retractable into a sheath-like groove and without lobes or other expanded tissue; base of the first dorsal fin not reaching (or slightly reaching) the base of the second dorsal fin origin in both sexes; and male with specific body color, with a blue belly, a second dorsal fin with one or two black spots, and a more or less visible bright red band on caudal peduncle (Ref. 97410).
Found in small and rapid mountain stream with a rocky bottom and boulder-strewn at an altitude ranging between 310 and 488 above sea level. Presumed to be amphidromous as the other members of the subfamily (Ref. 97410).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 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
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
