Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 14. This species is distinguished from its congeners P. balsanus, P. oaxacae, P. mixtlanensis by having long epiotic processes that extend beyond the epipleural ribs of the first vertebra (vs. short epiotic process not reaching the epipleural ribs of the first vertebra); differs from P. guatemalensis, P. kreiseri by having rows of dark dots along the sides of the body (vs. absence of rows of dark dots in P. guatemalensis, P. kreiseri; differs from P. punctatus by having a dorsoventrally compressed Meckel’s cartilage with a relatively straight ventral edge and a narrow and strongly concave sesamoid articular (vs. dorso-ventrally expanded Meckel’s cartilage with convex ventral edge and a wide and moderately concave sesamoid articular in P. punctatus; differs from P. oaxacae by the number of scales in the lateral series, 33 (vs. 29-31 in P. oaxacae) (Ref. 119416).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality during sampling has the following environmental conditions: water temperature 27°C, pH 6.7, conductivity 10.9 mS, dissolved oxygen 12.3 mg/L, river width 20 m, and capture depth 0.5 m. The current was slow, and there was no canopy cover. Also collected with this species were Poeciliopsis pleurospilus, Poecilia sphenops, Sicydium salvini. The species was captured in a range of altitudes from 188 to 420 meters (Ref. 119416).
