Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 33. Schistura andrewi is distinguished from other congeners from the Kaladan basin and its adjacent basins by having the combination of the following characters: axillary pelvic lobe long; lateral line complete with 82-95 pores; dorsal and anal fins with 2 unbranched rays; 6-7 broad, wider than interspace, black bars on the body; 2 rows of black spots horizontally across the dorsal fin; a deeply emarginate caudal fin with 2 vertical rows of black spots across the fin, and 9 + 8 branched caudal fin rays; a sub-orbital flap present in males; and intestine looped behind the stomach (Ref. 97391).

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=0.00617 (0.00255 - 0.01493), b=3.02 (2.84 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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 (13 of 100) .
