Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10; Vertebrae: 36 - 38. This species can be diagnosed from all congeners from Eastern Mediterranean Region ( Pseudophoxinus firati, P. kervillei, P. zeregi, P. zekayi) by the following unique combination of characters: head short, its length 26-28% SL, approximately equal to or slightly shorter than body depth; mouth terminal, with slightly distinct chin, its corner not reaching vertical through anterior margin of eye; eye small, its diameter 25-29% HL, smaller than snout length; lateral line incomplete, with 12-25 (commonly 16-21) perforated scales and 38-46+2-3 scales in lateral series (commonly 41-44 +2-3); 10-11 scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin; 3-4 scale rows between lateral line and the pelvic-fin origin; 8-11(rarely 13) gill rakers on the first branchial arch; and pharyngeal teeth 5-4, slightly serrated and hooked at tip (Ref. 96086).

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=0.00813 (0.00397 - 0.01666), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-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 (22 of 100) .
