Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 4.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 105385)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Phoxinus ketmaieri is distinguished from other congeners from Italy and Western Balkans by having low number of scales in longitudinal series 58-61, and number of circumpeduncular scales, 24-26. The holotype has a depigmented body but with melanophores traces of the former pigmentation and breast blotches of scales separated. In a paratype from Zrmanje, the longitudinal stripe extends from the tip of snout to the end of caudal peduncle where it ends in a roundish spot. The pharyngeal teeth usually 4.1 or 4.2, body moderately elongate, dorsal profile convex sometimes with a slightly pronounced hump, dorsal profile of the head slightly more convex than ventral, snout blunt, mouth slightly subterminal, and chin rounded (Ref. 105385).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

On the Krk island, this species was encountered in a small brook, Baska brook at Baska draga, not far from the sea (Ref. 105385).

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):  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 (11 of 100) .
