Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 15 - 16; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 10-11; Espinas anales 3; Radios blandos anales: 7 - 8. Diagnosis: lower pharyngeal jaw robust, with a large, heart-shaped dentigerous plate, covered with numerous fine, regularly arrayed teeth; mouth squared and obtuse (Ref. 81260). Lips broad and fleshy; ventral margin of lower lip folded and fringed (Ref. 26738, 81260). Fine buccal dentition of slender, movably implanted, spatulate teeth, 25-45 in outer premaxillary row (Ref. 26738).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Smaller specimens primarily found between sunken pieces of trees near lake shore, while larger specimens are found at greater depth - between 3 and 8 m; feeds mainly on plants and small quantities of diatoms and insects (Ref. 52307). Pair-bonding, open (Ref. 52307) substrate brooder/spawner (Ref. 52307, 81260). Biparental species that constructs a nest at a depth between 1 and 5 m, usually on a muddy bottom; pit relatively large and normally surrounded by some smaller satellite pits; when threatened, females will often seek refuge in these pits while males tend to swim away to open water (Ref. 52307). Maximum size recorded is 8.7 cm TL (Ref. 5163).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00684 - 0.03200), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.1 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
