Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from T. albonubesT. kuehnei, T. micagemmae. by having a black lateral stripe located on the dorsal half of the flank (vs. on middle of flank), and a reddishorange dorsal-fin margin (vs. white); differs from .T. thacbaensis by the origin of the anal fin, anterior to the base of the last dorsal-fin ray (vs. posterior), and mouth superior (vs. terminal) (Ref. 125918).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected at a small hill stream, about 2 m wide on average, located in the depths of the forest. Water depth varied from approximately 0.4 to 1 m and the bottom consisted of mud mixed with sand. Some aquatic plants (Cryptocoryne crispatula and Blyxa sp.) in the lower part of the habitat. Other fish species found were Oryzias pectoralis, Macropodus hongkongensis and Rhinogobius cf. duospilus (Ref. 125918),

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
