Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Nemacheilidae ()
Etymology: Triplophysa: Greek, triplos = thrice + Greek, physa = tube (Ref. 45335);  pseudostenura: Derived from Greek 'pseudo', alluding to the fact that the species, T. pseudostenura, was first misidentified as Triplophysa stenura.

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal.   Tropical

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 16.4 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 115192); max. published weight: 28.50 g (Ref. 115192)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal soft rays: 7. Can be diagnosed by the following characters: smooth and scalesless body; tapering and relatively narrow head, head width 47.6-54.0% HL; eye diameter 12.1-17.6% HL; thin and smooth lips; slender and laterally compressed trunk; caudal-peduncle length 20.0-23.8% SL; slender, laterally compressed (cross-section of caudal peduncle elliptic) and tapering caudal peduncle , with trunk towards the base of caudal fin; pelvic fin insertion anterior to dorsal-fin origin; dorsal-fin origin closer to caudal-fin base than to snout tip; caudal fin deeply concave; lateral line complete; posterior chamber of gas bladder reduced or absent; intestine short, in zigzag pattern posterior to bottom of ‘U’-shaped stomach (Ref. 92369).

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=0.00741 (0.00431 - 0.01274), b=2.94 (2.79 - 3.09), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
