Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 23.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 108688 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species has the following characters: pigmented body; functional eyes; dorsal fin base 14.4-19.4% of SL; origin of adipose fin anterior to the anus; maxillary barbels extend beyond pelvic fin origin; adipose fin insertion closer to the dorsal fin than to the caudal fin; brown body with a distinct lateral longitudinal dark band (Ref. 108688 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species occupies main channel of rivers and streams, either with turbid waters and high sediment loads or with transparent waters and few nutrients. It prefers pools and slow-flowing waters of different depths and has plant material deposits and heavy substrates such as rocks and stones which serve as shelter for this fish during the day (Ref. 108688 ).

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=0.00776 (0.00354 - 0.01702), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.7   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  . Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (18 of 100) .
