Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cyprinidae (Minnows or carps) > Barbinae
Etymology: Enteromius: Greek, enteron = intestine + Greek, myo, mys = muscle (Ref. 45335);  teugelsi: This species is named after and dedicated to Prof. Dr. Guy G. Teugels (1954-2003), an outstanding ichthyologist who introduced M. Bamba and E. Vreven to fish taxonomy and greatly contributed to the knowledge of the African fishes over the last twenty years (Ref. 87721).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosis: Within West Africa, this species is ditinguished from all other small African barbs (Enteromius) by the following unique combination of characters: last simple dorsal-fin ray smooth on hind margin, vs. denticulate on hind margin in E. cadenati, E. carcharhinoides, E. dialonensis and E. guineensis; two long barbels, vs. no barbels in E. anema, E. clauseni, E. pumilus and E. salessei and single pair of very short barbels in E. pobeguini; no black spot on dorsal fin, vs. black spot on dorsal fin in E. aboinensis, E. callipterus, E. macrops and E. raimbaulti; 3.5 scales between dorsal-fin base and lateral line and 21 to 24 lateral line scales, vs. higher scale numbers: 4.5 to 5.5 and 27 to 30 in E. atakorensis, E. bagbwensis, E. bigornei, E. boboi, E. chlorotaenia, E. lauzannei, E. nigeriensis and E. subensis; the presence of a black mid-lateral band, vs. no mid-lateral band or one to five well defined spots on the flanks in E. aliciae, E. anniae, E. baudoni, E. camptacanthus, E. eburneensis, E. foutensis, E. huguenyi, E. liberiensis, E. macinensis, E. perince, E. stigmatopygus, E. sublineatus, E. sylvaticus, E. tiekoroi, E. traorei, E. trispiloides, E. trispilos and E. walkeri; 12 scales around caudal peduncle, vs. 10 or less in E. bawkuensis, E. ditinensis, E. guildi, E. inaequalis, E. leonensis, E. melanotaenia, E. punctitaeniatus and E. zalbiensis; and the absence of a striped pattern on the mid-dorsal parts, present in E. nikoloensis (Ref. 87721). Although Enteromius teugelsi is very similar in general habitus to E. ablabes and E. parablabes, it can be distinguished from both species by its longer barbels 3/5, vs. 2/3; poorly developed or absent cephalic sensory canals, vs. well developed cephalic sensory canals; and a low number of gill rakers, 3-6 vs. 7-12 and 7-9 (Ref. 87721).

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=0.00977 (0.00374 - 0.02556), b=3.02 (2.79 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (18 of 100) .
