Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Esociformes (Pikes and mudminnows) > Esocidae (Pikes)
Etymology: Esox: From Greek, isox and also related with the Celtic root, eog, ehawc = salmon (Ref. 45335);  cisalpinus: The specific name flaviae is the female genitive of Flavia, the name of the first women of the Flavian Dynasty, which included the emperor Titus Flavius (both his mother and his sister were named Flavia), to whom Pliny dedicated his Naturalis Historia. Four books of Naturalis Historia are devoted to zoology and to an attempt of systematics and they became a reference for subsequent naturalistic books. We dedicate the new species to the same person, to underline the 'latin' origin of the species. Moreover, we propose the vernacular name of southern pike for the new species, to point out the different origin with respect to northern pike.

Issue
E. flaviae Lucentini et al., 2011 is probably a synonym of this species.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5157   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00391 - 0.01018), b=3.03 (2.90 - 3.16), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (tmax=13).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (42 of 100) .
