Morphology | Morphometrics
(total): 12 - 13;
soft rays: 16 - 19;
Vertebrae: 36. This species is distinguished from its congeners in European inland waters by the following combination of characters: cheeks with 3-5 rows of bold black dots, roughly running diagonally from eye backward and downward, with space between 2 of the lower rows greyish and spaces between upper rows paler; simple cirrus above eye; head length 29-33% SL; upper jaw with 25-30 teeth, lower jaw with 20-27; A II,16-19; D XII-XIII,16-17 (Ref. 59043).
A territorial species found in lake shores and usually in dense vegetation at 0.3 to 2 m depth. Adults feed on insects and crustaceans. They spawn in May-July. Eggs hatch in about one week. Larvae are planktonic until about 15 mm. (Ref. 59043).
