Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 14 - 16; Vertebrae: 41 - 42. This species can be diagnosed from its congeners in Turkey and adjacent waters by the following combination of characters (none unique to the species): a poorly developed and completely scaled ventral keel between pelvic and anal fins; body depth at dorsal-fin origin 24-29% SL; caudal-peduncle depth 10-12% SL and 1.9-2.2 times in its length; predorsal length 48-55% SL; mouth terminal, the tip of the mouth cleft between level of lower margin of pupil and lower margin of eye; the tip of upper lip not projecting beyond the lower lip (tip of both lips are equal) in most specimens; snout with rounded tip; 45-53 + 1-2 scales on lateral line, 9-11 scale rows between lateral-line and dorsal-fin origin, 4-5 scale rows between lateral-line and anal-fin origin; anal fin with 11½-13½ branched rays; pharyngeal teeth 5.1-2.4 or 5.2-2.4, markedly hooked; total vertebrae 41-42 with mode of 42 (including 4 Weberian vertebrae and last complex centrum), comprising 20-22 with mode of 21 abdominal, and 20-21 with mode of 21 caudal vertebrae; dark grey stripe distinct on anterior and posterior parts of body; pigmentation of lateral line distinct (Ref. 94737).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in swift and clear flowing water with cobble and pebbles. Collected together with Capoeta umbla (Heckel, 1843); Barbus lacerta Heckel, 1843; Alburnus mossulensis Heckel, 1843, Oxynoemacheilus sp., and Salmo sp. (Ref. 94737).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00832 (0.00372 - 0.01857), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
