Etymology: Eudontomyzon: Greek, eu = good + Greek, odous = teeth + Greek, myzo = to suckle (Ref. 45335); stankokaramani: Dedicated to Stanko Karaman.
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
Freshwater; demersal. Temperate, preferred ?; 41°N - 39°N, 19°E - 22°E (Ref. 59043)
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)
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).
