Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from its congeners in Black Sea basin by the possession of the following characters: dorsal fin with 7½ branched rays; anal fin with 6½ branched rays; anus midway between pelvic and anal origins; absence of scales between pectoral bases; longitudinal epithelial crests on predorsal scales restricted to posterior scale margin (Ref. 59043).

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=0.00575 (0.00268 - 0.01234), b=3.13 (2.95 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 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 (24 of 100) .
