Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 43 - 44. This species is distinguished from its congeners in Turkey and the Aegean basin by possessing a less strongly ossified last simple dorsal-fin ray and with fewer serrae along the proximal part of its posterior margin (serrated along 49-52 % of its length, vs. 56-77; 15-17 serrae, vs. 18-32) and having fewer gill rakers on the first gill arch (6-8, modally 8, vs. 7-14, modally 9-11 in the different species). It is further distinct with the following characters (none unique to the species): a small size (largest known specimen 14.6 cm SL); a short caudal fin (15.7-20.4 % SL); large and many irregular black spots on the back, as well as on the fins and flank, and small black spots on the head, extending downwards to the cheek; fleshy lips; lateral line scales 62-71; scale rows between the lateral line and the dorsal-fin origin 13-15 and between the lateral line and the anal-fin origin 8-10; last simple dorsal-fin ray weakly ossified; body depth at dorsal-fin origin 17.2-22.4 % SL; head length 23.3-25.7 % SL (Ref. 80049).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in swift flowing water, with cobble and pebble bottom (Ref. 80049).

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=0.00741 (0.00358 - 0.01533), b=3.05 (2.87 - 3.23), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 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):  Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
