Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. Diagnosed from all congeners from Java, Sumatra and Borneo by having 4½ scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin and 12 scales around the caudal peduncle. Can be further separated by having the combination of the following features: lateral line scales 32+2; 4 barbels; pectoral fin extending to 3/4 of distance to pelvic -fin origin; pelvic fin extending anal-fin origin; dorsal-fin tip extending slightly beyond vertical through anal-fin origin, when folded backwards; length of head less than body depth at dorsal-fin origin (Ref. 75626).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00977 (0.00438 - 0.02182), b=3.02 (2.82 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (31 of 100) .
