Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cyprinidae (Minnows or carps) > Barbinae
Etymology: Barbus: Latin, barbus = barbel (Ref. 45335);  biharicus: Named for the Bihar Counties (there are counties with this name in both Romania and Hungary), where the species is almost exclusively distributed.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Barbus biharicus can be distinguished by having significantly larger interorbital and preanal distance than B. balcanicus, B. carpathicus and B. petenyi, and significantly deeper head than B. carpathicus and B. petenyi. Compared to these 3 species, it has a tendency to have shorter, rounded snout, slightly longer pectoral fins, but slightly shorter anal fin. It can be further identified by having small dark spots on dorsal region of body and flanks and, to a lesser extent, head, and dark pigments on the fins occasionally form dark spots (the other species have heavy dark spots, which typically are arranged into rows on dorsal and caudal fins) (Ref. 106510).

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=0.00724 (0.00349 - 0.01505), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
