Issue
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.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal.   Temperate, preferred ?; 41°N - 39°N, 19°E - 22°E (Ref. 59043)

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Europe: Drin drainage, including Lake Ohrid and Lake Skadar basins (Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 20.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59403)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (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.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

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).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Probably metamorphoses in November to April in Drin dainage (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00115 (0.00049 - 0.00268), b=3.01 (2.80 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (39 of 100) .
