Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. This species differs from all congeners by the combination of the following characters: body slender with head depth at nape 1.1-1.2 times in body depth; all specimens with prominent black midlateral stripe; entire ventral side silvery-white; dorsal fin with 6 1/2 or 7 1/2 branched rays; caudal fin with 7-8 + 8 branched rays; anus positioned halfway between pelvic-fin origin and anal-fin origin; and body small with largest known size 3.13 cm SL (Ref. 95079).
Found in clear and shallow (30-60 cm depth) water above gravel with moderately fast flowing water (Ref. 95079).

= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00268 - 0.01487), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.0 ±0.3 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.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
