Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 45 - 46. Diagnosis: Distinguished from its congeners by the combination of the following characters: two pairs of barbels; snout pointed; 64-77 lateral line scales; 12-14 rows of scales between lateral line and dorsal fin origin, 9-11 between lateral line and anal-fin origin; 12-16 gill rakers on first gill arch; shape of lower jaw not sexually dimorphic; head length 22.2-25.8% SL; depth of caudal peduncle 9.8-11.7% SL; head width at posterior margin of eye 49.4-58.2% HL; snout depth at nostril 29.7-35.I% HL; length of anterior barbel 12.4-20.8% HL and posterior barbel 18.4-28.8% HL (Ref. 57640).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits swift flowing water, with cobbles and pebbles bottom. Feeds mainly on zoo- and phytoplankton, some invertebrate, algae and other aquatic plants. Reported to spawn between May and June in Çoruh. In stream Oltu, it reaches 40 cm FL, 838 g and 12 years; reaches sexual maturity at 2-3 years (Ref. 57640).

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=0.00759 (0.00379 - 0.01520), b=2.98 (2.81 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.5   ±0.24 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tm=1-3 and Fec>10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (40 of 100) .
