Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Vertebre: 35. With 5 branched anal fin rays; life color black rich pale blue, dorsal and caudal fins black-edged; in some specimens anal fin with black tip. Dorsal fin may also be black-tipped (Ref. 13216). Lips covered by large papillae; last simple dorsal ray osseous and serrated (Ref. 43281).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Occurs from midwater to bottom depths in the middle and lower Mekong. Inhabits clear waters of the main channels during the dry season and moves to floodplains and riparian forests during the rainy season. Relatively common in the upland river habitat of the middle Mekong until water levels begin to rise. Dietary habits still unknown, but the subterminal mouth and papillate lips indicate that it probably roots around for food in fine-grained sediments (Ref. 12693). Found in the basin-wide mainstream of the lower Mekong (Ref. 36667).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00431 - 0.02019), b=3.02 (2.84 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.0   ±0.00 se; Based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 69278):  Basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 4.5 - 14 anni (Assuming tm>4).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (67 of 100) .
