Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 20 - 22; Vertebrae: 33 - 35. Diagnosis: Distinguished from its congeners except L. insularis, L. lankensis, L. ruhuna, and L. varuna by its colour pattern, including a dark stripe along the middle of the posterior third of the side or slightly shorter, anteriorly replaced by 6–11 short vertical bars (vs. presence of a dark stripe along the side but no bars in L. fasciata, L. parafasciata, and L. trevori; plain sides or presence of a very narrow posterior stripe in L. khujairokensis, L. latens, and L. laubuca; indistinct vertical bars anteriorly on the side, followed by a dark stripe ending in a triangular spot on the caudal-fin base in L. siamensis; a few dark bars present anteriorly on the side but lateral band absent in L. caeruleostigmata); distinguished from L. fasciata, L. latens and L. trevori also by more dorsal-fin rays (ii.8½ vs. ii.7½) and from L. siamensis by the absence of a dark spot on the caudal-fin base; distinguished from L. insularis by fewer scales in the lateral line (29–32 vs. 34–36), shorter pelvic fin (not reaching to vent, vs. reaching to bases of anal-fin rays 3–8); from L. lankensis by fewer scales in the lateral line (29–32 vs. 34–37); from L. ruhuna and L. varuna by the presence of an entire, narrow lateral band on the posterior third of the body, vs. a series of blotches along the side which may form a broad band extending anteriorly to about the middle of the side (Ref. 118870).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00575 (0.00267 - 0.01239), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
