Etymology: eurystaenia: The specific name is derived from the Greek eurys, broad, and the Latin taenia, band, in reference to the broad dark stripe.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Vertebrae: 34. Can be diagnosed from all its congeners, except Moenkhausia heikoi and Moenkhausia phaeonota, by having a dark, broad longitudinal stripe from the opercle to the end of caudal peduncle. Differs from Moenkhausia heikoi mainly by possessing 18-21 branched rays on anal fin (vs. 24-26), by the absence of a round blotch at the end of the caudal peduncle (vs. present) and by the dark stripe formed by relatively small chromatophores (vs. large chromatophores). Can be separated from Moenkhausia phaeonota by the anterior portion of longitudinal band darker at horizontal septum (vs. darker below horizontal septum), the deep dark pigmentation along horizontal septum extending anteriorly up to humeral region (vs. extending up to vertical through pelvic-fin origin), number of vertebrae 34 (vs. 36-37), more dispersed dark stripe, not well delimited (vs. less disperse, relatively well delimited), the melanophores of interradial membrane between first and fifth branched dorsal-fin rays restricted to the edge of lepidotrichia (vs. spread over interradial membrane), the distance between snout to pelvic-fin origin 46.9-50% SL (vs. 43.2-46.6), the distance from snout to anal-fin origin 62.1-65.4% SL (vs. 55.9-61.2), the anal-fin base length 25.1-28.4% SL (vs. 28.5-33.8) (Ref. 85160).

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=0.01445 (0.00650 - 0.03213), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
