Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 14 - 16;
Vertebrae: 40 - 42. Distinguished from all congeners in Turkey and adjacent areas by a combination of the following characters (none unique to the species): ventral keel between pelvic fin and
anal fin partly or slightly developed; scaleless about 1/2 to 2/3 its length; upper body profile markedly convex, with marked hump at nape, especially in specimens larger than 60 mm SL; upper head profile straight or slightly convex in interorbital area, slightly convex on snout; corner of mouth reaching vertical through anterior margin of pupil; snout with slightly pointed
tip; interorbital width 7-8% SL; dark grey stripe indistinct or slightly distinct in anterior part of body but distinct in posterior body; pigmentation of lateral line slightly distinct in anterior part of body but indistinct in posterior part of body in most of specimens; scales on lateral-line 45-52+2-3; scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin 9-12; scale rows between lateral line and anal-fin origin 4-5; , anal fin with 10½-12½ branched rays; pharyngeal teeth 4.2-2.4, markedly hooked; and total vertebrae 40-42 (20-22, with mode of 21, abdominal and 19-21, with mode of 20, caudal vertebrae) (Ref. 91784).
Occurs in clear fast running water with cobble and pebble substrates. Collected together with Capoeta tinca, Barbus oligolepis, Squalius cii, Vimba vimba, Chondrostoma sp., Rhodeus amarus, Oxynoemacheilus sp. and Alburnus sp. (Ref. 91784).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00661 (0.00277 - 0.01579), b=3.13 (2.95 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.1 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
