Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8; Vertebrae: 31 - 32. Pethia rutila can be distinguished from all species of Pethia occurring in the Ganges-Brahmaputra drainage, Kaladan drainage and the Chindwin-Irrawaddy drainage, except P. expletiforis, P. macrogramma, P. stoliczkana and P. tiantian, in having a complete lateral line. It differs from all its congeners by the combination of the following characters: a black caudal-peduncle blotch extending over scales 16-18 or 17-19 of the lateral line centered above the insertion of the last anal-fin ray; an inconspicuous black humeral spot on the scale row below the 3rd and 4th lateral-line scales; 8 or 9 predorsal scales; 4½ scales between dorsal-fin origin and lateral line, and 3½ scales between lateral line and pelvic-fin origin (Ref. 96523).

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=0.01023 (0.00484 - 0.02165), b=3.01 (2.84 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.2 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 (11 of 100) .
