Abstract

Color patterns (including breeding colors), growth features and sexual dimorphism of the dwarf loach Kichulchoia brevifasciata were studied at a stream in Geumsan-myeon, Goheung-gun, Jeollanam-do, Korea. An oblique stripe from the snout tip to the eye disappeared with fish growth, concurrent with an increasing number of oval dots on the head. The opercular rim became golden-greenish during the spawning season. No significant morphological features were apparent between sexes, excepting females attained a larger body size.
