Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 37400)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8 - 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8. Male and female with several rows of red spots on dorsal midline. Males with distal half of first dorsal red and with 6 - 8 black bars on the trunk. Females with a large black spot on its first dorsal fin (Ref. 37400); lacks an infraorbital lateral canal (Ref. 92840).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Prefers areas with gravel and overhanging vegetation in slower places of swift, clear streams; rocks and gravel usually coated with detritus. Dives into the substrate when threatened, with its eyes, mouth and first dorsal fin above the gravel. Feeds mainly on small freshwater crustaceans, especially transparent shrimp which are abundant. Ref. for amphidromous (Keith et al, in press 2014).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.1250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00437 (0.00167 - 0.01142), b=3.12 (2.89 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.59 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
