Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 15 - 16; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 10-11; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 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).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. 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).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.1 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliens (Ref. 120179):  Hög, lägsta populationsfördubblingstid mindre än 15 månader (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
