Asia: Cambodia and Thailand (Ref. 12693 ). Reported from the Mekong basin in Yunnan, China (Ref. 39226 ).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 37826 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays : 8. Distinguished from other species of the genus by the combination of the following characters: lateral length of head 19-22% SL (23-25% in B. mysorensis ), caudal peduncle 1.9-2.8 times longer than deep (3.0-4.2 times in B. burmanica and B. brucei ). Distinguished from B. annamitica by its color pattern consisting of somewhat irregular blotches on the back (versus circular in B. annamitica ) (Ref. 37826 ). With 9-10 unbranched pectoral-fin rays (Ref. 12693 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits high gradient streams. Feed on benthic insects, small amounts of phytoplankton and periphyton.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00562 (0.00236 - 0.01338), b=3.08 (2.87 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.4   ±0.22 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  . Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
