Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 8.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 83419)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Vertebrae: 36 - 37. Diagnosed from all other congeners in Anatolia and the northern Levant by the combination of the following characters: incomplete lateral line, reaching from vertical of tip of pectoral fin to vertical of anal-fin origin, perforating 12-31 scales; 54-64 + 2-3 scales in lateral series; 13½ -16½ scales between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin; pelvic-fin origin slightly in front fo dorsal-fin origin; pelvic fin short, not reaching anus; pelvic axillary lobe absent; no keel between posterior pelvic-fin base and anus; prominent epidermal black stripe from eye to caudal-fin base in live and preserved individuals; snout rounded; mouth terminal; head length 26-30% SL; and predorsal length 56-61% SL (Ref. 83419).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from an irrigation canal draining water from a stream. Population may have dropped dramatically due to water abstraction in large quantities from the stream and from the canals (Ref. 83419).

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=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.2 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 (21 of 100) .
