Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. Differs from all congeners from Java, Sumatra and Borneo by having slender body (body depth at anus 14.3-19.1% SL ; body depth at dorsal-fin origin 20.3-24.7% SL, except Lobocheilos ixocheilos with 19.9-24.1) and caudal peduncle depth 10.1-11.9% SL, 1.7-2.0 times in its length. Can be further differentiated by the combination of the following features: presence of broad, black midlateral stripe, reaching on median caudal rays, running above the lateral line on most of the entire length; lateral line scales 32-33+2-3; absence of black blotch at end of caudal peduncle; presence of crescentic marks on scale pockets, with apex pointing backwards; 2 barbels, about half of eye diameter; pectoral fin extending to 3/4 of distance to pelvic -fin origin; pelvic fin extending between anus and anal-fin origin; when folded backwards, dorsal-fin tip reaching between vertical through anus and anal-fin origin; 6½ scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin; head length slightly greater than body depth at origin of dorsal fin (Ref. 75626).
Reaches up to at least 14 cm SL (Ref. 75626).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00349 - 0.02613), b=3.01 (2.77 - 3.25), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245
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).
