More on author: Hora.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Tropical
Asia: known only from the Myitnge watershed of the Irrawaddy in northern Shan States, Myanmar (Ref. 36341). Questionable in Thailand (Ref. 1632) and in the Salween basin (Ref. 12041).
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 7.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4832); max. published weight: 3.90 g (Ref. 124711)
soft rays: 13 - 15;
Vertebrae: 33 - 35. Incomplete or complete lateral line; infraorbital process absent; branched dorsal fin rays 7; usually 10 or 11 branched anal fin rays. A distinct series of narrow vertical bars anteriorly on side of body, followed by a horizontal P stripe extending to end of caudal peduncle; barbels absent or rudimentary (Ref. 36341).
Found in rice fields, small ponds and pools in hill streams (Ref. 4832). Collected from streams with fast flowing, clear water, over a substrate with rocks, sand and pebbles (Ref. 36341). Most specimens obtained in late March 1997 appeared to be sexually mature (Ref. 36341).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01230 (0.00631 - 0.02399), b=3.05 (2.88 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for species & Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.0 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
