Freshwater; benthopelagic. Subtropical
Asia: Köprü River drainage in central Anatolia, Turkey.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 9 - 11. Differs from congeners in Anatolia and the northern Levant by the combination of the following characters: lateral line complete, reaching to caudal-fin base; 74-85 + 3-4 scales in lateral line; lateral line slanted upwards to lateral midline at vertical of posterior anal-fin base or anterior caudal peduncle; 12-14 short gill rakers; 8-10 scales between lateral line and pelvic-fin origin; last simple dorsal-fin ray flexible; upper lip projecting beyond tip of lower lip; pelvic fins short, no reaching to anus, pelvic axillary lobe present; prominent epidermal black stripe from eye to caudal-fin base; head and snout pointed (Ref. 83422).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00457 (0.00257 - 0.00814), b=3.05 (2.90 - 3.20), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.7 ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Generation time: 5.0 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 1 growth studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Moderate vulnerability (37 of 100) .
