Etymology: Eudontomyzon: eu-, a Greek intensive (good, well or very); odontos (Gr.) tooth, referring to numerous radially arranged teeth of E. danfordi; myzon (Gr.), to suck (borrowed from Petromyzon), referring to their suctorial behavior. (See ETYFish); stankokaramani: In honor of Karaman’s father, biologist Stanko L. Karaman (1889-1959), founder, Macedonian Museum of Natural History, “the greatest explorer of freshwater fish fauna in Yugoslavia”. (See ETYFish).
This species is questionably a junior synonym of Eudontomyzon mariae (Berg, 1931) in Renaud (2011; Re. 89241:41). Please send references, or more studies are needed.

Max length : 20.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59403)
Morphology | Morphometrics
(total): 0. With 58-65 trunk myomeres. The trunk is mottled in ammocoetes. The caudal fin is of spade-like shape and grey to black. The exolateral teeth are villiform, very small, weakly developed and frequently absent.
A non-parasitic species (Ref. 58030). Adults inhabit piedmont and montane zones in clear, well oxygenated brooks. Ammocoetes live in detritus-rich sands or clay sediments (Ref. 59043).
