Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 15 - 18. Distinguished from all congeners by having 45-54+2-3 scales in midlateral series; nuptial males with hump behind eye; head length 26-29% SL; anal fin with 15-17½ rays, mode 17½ ; second dorsal fin with 18-19½ rays, mode 18½ (Ref. 75105).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in moderately fast flowing and stagnant portions of medium-sized stream (Ref. 75105); flow of about 10 m3/s.. No data on biology known so far. It is still abundant in a very limited stretch of stream (about 25 km long), but s declining, if water abstraction (large quantities extracted for irrigation) intensifies, the whole stream might dry in summer (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00871 (0.00414 - 0.01834), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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 (21 of 100) .
