Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 8. Diagnosis: Garra jordanica is closely related and geographically adjacent to G. ghorensis, from which it is distinguished by having 8 1/2 branched rays on dorsal fin (vs. 7 1/2), 33-35 + 2 lateral line scales (vs. 31-32 +2), a large round, black blotch on the flank at the middle of the posterior caudal peduncle (vs. absent), 4-7 rows of deeply embedded scales on the breast between the pectoral-fin bases (vs. no or one row, or one additional scale in the middle between the pectoral fin-base in some individuals), the pelvic fin not overlapping the anus in individuals larger than 7 cm standard length (vs. overlapping), shorter barbels and details in the arrangement of tubercles on the head (Ref. 98824).

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=0.00933 (0.00424 - 0.02056), b=3.03 (2.85 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
