Etymology: Danio: From ‘dhani’, local Bengali/Bangla name for small minnows (Ref. 2031);  aesculapii: Genitive of Aesculapius (Latin form of Asklepios, Ἀσκληπιός), ancient Greek god of medicine, equipped with a staff with one or two snakes wrapped around it. This is in reference to the snakeskin pattern of this species.  More on authors: Kullander & Fang.

Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 9; Raggi anali molli: 14 - 16; Vertebre: 32 - 34. Distinguished from all congeners of Danio by its color pattern comprising 6-7 brown vertical bars anteriorly on side and two horizontal rows of small brown spots posteriorly, absence of D stripe, and absence of dark stripes on caudal fin. This species is similar to Danio kerri and Danio erythromicron in having 12 circumpeduncular scale rows (vs. 14 in Danio dangila and 10 in other species of Danio); and in having 6 branched dorsal fin rays (vs. 7-8 in other species of Danio) (Ref. 81818).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

The type locality is a small stream flowing out of the forest into cultivations, at most 3 m wide and about 30 cm deep. This small stream is characterized by clear water and only slight current, bottom comprising pebbles rock, and gravel, and by the absence of aquatic vegetation. Also occurs in a stagnant pool with leaf litter and sandy bottom and in small forest streams with rocky bottom (Ref. 81818).
