Max length : 4.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 85329)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 35. Distinguished from all its congeners by its unique caudal-fin pigmentation pattern, consisting of an approximately symmetrical pattern of small black blotches on both upper and lower caudal-fin lobes. Can be further diagnosed from other species of Psilorhynchus by the combination of the following characters: snout length 53-55% HL; ventral surface between paired fins with a broad rectangular scale-less patch; dorsal fin with 9 branched rays; pectoral fin with 5 unbranched rays; caudal fin with 9+9 rays; scales on lateral line 32-33; lateral sides of body marked with 6 indistinct round to squarish dark-brown blotches, arranged in a longitudinal row; dorsal saddles deep, extending 3-4 scale rows downwards from the dorsal surface, in contact with the round to squarish dark brown blotches, arranged in a longitudinal row on flank (Ref. 85329).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a swift-flowing river with dense riparian vegetation and a substrate of sand, gravel and small boulders (Ref. 85329).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00417 (0.00181 - 0.00961), b=3.16 (2.95 - 3.37), 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. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
