Description synthétique Morphologie | Morphométrie

Épines dorsales (Total): 2; Rayons mous anaux: 30 - 33. Distinguished from all other Pangasius species by the combination of the following characters: a somewhat spatulated (broad and rounded) head (snout length 40.0-53.4% HL; head depth 48.0-54.7% HL; head width 70.7-76.6% HL); short palatine tooth plates (10.0-12.8% HL); a very robust dorsal spine (width of spine 9.25-11.2 times in its length).

Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Inhabits deeper waters. Occurs sympatrically with P. krempfi in the Mekong delta. It is considered as a candidate species for aquaculture and its reproduction in captivity has already been achieved in the Mekong delta, Viet Nam (Ref. 33567).
