Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8;
Vertebrae: 26. Can be differentiated from its congeners by the following combination of characters: absence of head pores but for two preopercular pores; body with large ocellate brown spot at mid-base of caudal fin, brown stripe running from tip of second first dorsal fin spine onto mid-side of body, and brown streak crossing cheek below eye to rictus; body compressed, head less so, with rounded to slightly pointed snout; jaws enlarged in large males; second dorsal rays I,7; anal rays I,8; pectoral rays 15-17, modally 16; longitudinal scales 25-29, modally 27; transverse scales backward 8-10; predorsal scales 11-15, cycloid, anteriormost few entering interorbital space (Ref. 56945).
Inhabits brackish streams (Ref. 56945).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5078 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00406 - 0.01955), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.3 ±0.4 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 (13 of 100) .
