Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from all Sundaic congeners in having the following unique characters: premaxillary toothband is approximately half exposed when the mouth is closed; eye diameter 7-9% HL; interorbital distance 28-33% HL; head width 19.4-22.3% SL; in the thoracic adhesive apparatus, no anteromedial striae but with medial pit; pectoral-fin spine length 13.6-17.9% SL; posterior margin of dorsal-fin spine smooth; margin of dorsal fin concave; prepelvic length 49.1-54.6% SL; preanal length 65.7-72.3% SL; body depth at anus 15.4-19.0% SL; adipose-fin base length 13.6-18.0% SL; caudal peduncle depth 8.0-11.4% SL (1.4-2.1 times in its length; 1.3-2.0 times in body depth at dorsal-fin origin); caudal peduncle length 15.5-18.2% SL; post-adipose distance 14.6-17.6% SL; caudal-fin with length 20.1-27.0% SL, the broad lobes lacking prominent dark longitudinal stripes running through each lobe (Ref. 128699).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in fast-flowing streams with a substrate of gravel and rocks. It is reported to spawn twice a year (once in April, again in July) and feeds primarily on ephemeropteran larvae in the Cisadane River in western Java (Ref. 128699).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00813 (0.00371 - 0.01783), b=3.00 (2.82 - 3.18), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
