Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15 - 17; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-10; Anal soft rays : 6 - 8; Vertebrae : 26 - 28. The species has conspicuous dark blotch covering superficial part of cleithrum above pectoral fin base. Lacks a dark caudal peduncle blotch. Body depth 30.7-38.9%SL; interorbital width 6,5-8,3% SL; scales in lateral row 25-27; circumpeduncular scales 19-20; pectoral rays usually 12. Has a series of prominent dark blotches along dorsal fin base and/or a series of dark blotches along middle of dorsal fin; and has indistinct bars on side. Has a distal extrascapular (Ref. 46238 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs solitarily in rivers, ponds and ditches. Also found in swamps (Ref. 1479 ). Feeds on worms, crustaceans and insects (Ref. 7020 ). Used for behavioral studies (Ref. 4537 ). Length indications of up to 8 cm in some publications are exaggerated (Ref. 89918 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Produces 30-100 eggs. Distinct pairing with embrace (Ref. 31218 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00447 (0.00175 - 0.01142), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.39 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec=10-100). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
