Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8 - 11; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 13 - 15; Vertebrae: 33. Similar to Mogurnda fulva and Mogurnda maccuneae from Lake Kutubu, but distinguished by its coloration, which is generally dark brown or dusky grey on the upper two-thirds and pale tan below, with a faint mid-lateral stripe on the side. It lacks the distinctly spatulate snout of M. maccuneae and is also separable from that species in total vertebrae. It is further distinguished from M. furva in number of soft dorsal rays, soft anal rays, branched caudal rays, predorsal scales, and longer caudal fin (Ref. 36923).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality is on the southern edge of Lake Kutubu near Gesege Village and consists of dense reeds. The species was collected with handnet (Ref. 36923).

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=0.01047 (0.00452 - 0.02424), b=3.06 (2.86 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 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 (23 of 100) .
