Differs from its congeners by the following combination of characters: absence of head pores; head with two horizontal dark streaks, side of body with midlateral row of dark blotches and short bars, two dark marks on pectoral fin base, first dorsal fin with black blotch, other fins barred with fine dark spots; second dorsal rays I,8-9; anal rays I,6-8; pectoral rays 12-15, usually 14; longitudinal scales 24-27; transverse scales backward 9-10; predorsal scales 8-12, reaching to close behind eyes, anteriormost scale usually somewhat larger than others; opercle with cycloid scales and cheek naked (Ref. 56945).
Inhabits shallow flowing river over sand and pebble substrate (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=0.00794 (0.00365 - 0.01726), b=3.11 (2.93 - 3.29), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.5 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) .
