Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Paraschistura aredvii can be diagnosed from the following congeners in Iran by a combination of non-unique characters: from P. nielseni by the absence of a suborbital groove (vs. presence), a bold and distinct color pattern on the flank in front of the dorsal-fin origin (vs. faint or absent) and a more slender caudal peduncle (caudal peduncle depth 1.4-1.7 times longer than deep vs. 1.0-1.4); from P. bampurensis by the absence of a suborbital flap in males (vs. presence), 7-9 bars on flank (vs. 11-18), wider than interspaces (vs. usually narrower) and a blunt snout (vs. pointed); from P. cristata by the absence of a dorsal adipose crest (vs. presence) and an incomplete lateral line (vs. complete); from P. kessleri by having dark- or pale-brown, or grey, irregularly set and shaped bars, absent or very faint on the flank in front of the dorsal-fin origin (vs. bars prominent, regularly shaped and set); from P. abdolii, P. kessleri, P. cristata and P. turcmenica by having the back and flank behind dorsal-fin origin covered by scales (vs. absence of scales on the flank in front of the dorsal-fin origin in P. abdolii and P. cristata, scales completely absent in P. kessleri and P. turcmenica); and also from P. abdolii by a shorter and stouter body (body depth at dorsal-fin origin 14-17 % SL vs. 10-14) (Ref. 103390).

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=0.00692 (0.00364 - 0.01313), b=3.15 (2.99 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 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 (14 of 100) .
