Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8. Diagnosed from its congeners in Balkan Peninsula by having the following characters: last simple dorsal ray spinous, serrated posteriorly; usually 64-71 + 3-4 scales on lateral line; 15-20 scale rows between lateral and dorsal origin; 10-13 scale rows between lateral and pelvic origin; anterior scales of flank partly embedded in skin; head, body and fins with conspicuous black dots, smaller than pupil; caudal with a few small dots and without distinct black margin; lower lip with a median lobe in individuals larger than about 10 cm SL, a swollen pad in smaller ones; eye diameter 2.4-3.2 rimes in snout length; caudal peduncle depth 1.6-1.9 times in its length (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits streams and rivers, preferring stretches with clear water and riffles (Ref. 59043).

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=0.00955 (0.00609 - 0.01498), b=3.02 (2.89 - 3.15), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.168; tmax=6).
Prior r = 0.61, 2 SD range = 0.39 - 0.94, log(r) = -0.49, SD log(r) = 0.22, Based on: 3 K, 5 tgen, 1 tmax, records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (58 of 100) .
