Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8;
Vertebrae: 24. Horadandia brittani can be diagnosed from its congener H. atukorali by the combination of the following characters: deeper body (depth 27.7-31.9 % SL, vs. 24.6-29.8); dorsal profile of head approximately straight (vs. concave) behind level of eye; lesser eye diameter (27-37 % HL, vs. 37-41); origin of dorsal fin distinctly behind (vs. slightly posterior to) origin of pelvic fin; pelvic fin just reaching (vs. reaching beyond) origin of anal fin; origin of dorsal fin located closer to hypural notch than to snout tip (vs. dorsal-fin origin located halfway between snout tip and hypural notch); a lateral process on side of kinethmoid absent (vs. present); palatine process of maxilla obtuse (vs. acute); and supraorbital length ~44 % eye diameter (vs. ~50 %) (Ref. 94541).
Inhabits coastal floodplain (Ref. 94541).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.7500 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00851 (0.00366 - 0.01979), b=3.07 (2.87 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.0 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
