Etymology: Sicyopterus: Greek, sika, sikya = cucumber + Greek, pteron = wing, fin (Ref. 45335); squamosissimus: The specific name alludes to the high numbers of scales compared to its congeners having two lateral clefts on crenulated upper lip, a second dorsal fin I10 and second and third rays of the first dorsal fin filamentous.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 10. Sicyopterus squamosissimus is distinguished by having two lateral clefts on crenulated upper lip, a second dorsal fin with one spine and 10 segmented rays, filamentous second and third rays of the first dorsal fin, 61-66 lateral scales, 21-26 predorsal scales and 17-22 transverse back scales, and a reddish caudal fin in male with a slight blue line on the upper and lower parts (Ref. 106177).
Occurs in small, rapid and boulder-strewn mountain streams with rocky bottoms with two other Sicydiinae, Sicyopterus lagocephalus (Pallas, 1770) and Stiphodon semoni Weber, 1895 (Ref. 106177).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
