(total): 6 - 7;
soft rays: 9 - 10. Lentipes argenteus is distinguished by the following characters: 16-17 pectoral rays; 4-8 scales in transverse backwards series; 35-49 lateral scales; first dorsal fin with 5-6 flexible spines; urogenital papilla retractable into a sheath-like groove and without lobes or other expanded tissue; female is characterised by 30-34 tricuspid teeth in the upper jaw; male with specific body color, generally entirely greyish to silver with a slightly reddish upper lip (Ref. 97410).
Found in swift, clear high gradient stream with a rocky and boulder-strewn bottom. Presumed to be amphidromous as the other members of the subfamily (Ref. 97410).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 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.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
