Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 4 - 6; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 114; Spine anali 1; Raggi anali molli: 19 - 22. This rainbowfish is distinguished by the following set of characters: D IV to VI-I,11-14; A I,19-22; pectoral rays 13 or 14; lateral scales 31-33 (often 33); colour generally brownish on back (blue in life), pale tan or whitish below with blackish (bluish black in life) midlateral stripe from upper edge of preopercle to caudal-fin base, covering about one and a half scale rows for most of its length and more strongly contrasted in males (Ref. 74958).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabits narrow (to about 15-20 m wide), clear rivers with gradual gradients flowing initially through second growth forest, but entering primary, nearly closed canopy forest after about 1 km upstream from the sea. Collected from deeper pools (to about 2-3 m) over limestone cobble/-gravel bottoms with slow to moderate flow rates; temperature of 25.5° and pH 8.7 (Ref. 74958).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
