Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 10-12; Vertebre: 33 - 34. Can be diagnosed by the following apomorphies: foramen in posterior region of metapterygoid forms an incomplete arch, bordered posteriorly by the hyomandibula; pectoral-fin rays bearing hooks; posterior margin of second infraorbital posteroventrally oblique and second infraorbital ventrally bordering anterior region of third infraorbital; fourth infraorbital more developed longitudinally than dorsoventrally; ascending process of premaxilla reaching just anterior end of nasal; and lateral line interrupted. Further distinguished from several characids by having 6-11 maxillary teeth and longitudinal, wavy stripes laterally on body in larger specimens (Ref. 89798).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Occurs in streams and semi-lentic and lotic shallow areas (up to 1.2 m deep) with moderate submerged vegetation and riparian vegetation composed by trees and shrubs. Streams are characterized by transparent water and bottom with mud, some stretches with sand or gravel (Ref. 89798).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01585 (0.00893 - 0.02811), b=3.04 (2.89 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
