Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Triplophysa huanjiangensis can be distinguished from its congers by the following characteristics: eyes and scales absent; caudal-fin forked; adipose keel present; lips with furrows; distal margin of dorsal-fin truncate, dorsal fin origin much more closer to caudal-fin base than snout tip; branched dorsal-fin rays 8; branched pelvic-fin rays 6–7; branched anal-fin rays 6; branched pectoral-fin rays 10–11; branched caudal-fin rays 13–14; pectoral-fin length 52.3–70.7 % of distance between pectoral-fin origin to pelvic-fin origin; dorsal-fin origin posterior to vertical line of pelvic-fin origin; outer rostral barbel longer than other two pairs of barbels, with 47.0– 73.8 % of lateral head length; anterior nostril with elongate barbel-like tip; posterior chamber of gas-bladder developed, reaching pelvic-fin origin (Ref. 87449).

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=0.00692 (0.00324 - 0.01477), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this 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):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100) .
