Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 11. Scales on predorsal midline 15 to 18, usually 16 to 17; scales in horizontal series 50 to 52, usually 51 to 52; breast scaled; an important reddish longitudinal band on outer margin on first and second dorsal fins on males and females, underlined with a white one (Ref. 48272).
Collected from freshwater streams mostly under tidal influence. Stream bottom consists mostly of shifting sand. Known to dive head first into sand when threatened (Ref. 48272).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00330 - 0.01663), b=2.99 (2.80 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.5 ±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 (15 of 100) .
