Morphology | Morphometrics
Can be diagnosed from Scardinius erythrophthalmus by having the following combination of characters: compact body and head, head width 15-17% SL (vs. 13-14), head length 28-31% SL (vs. 24-8) and caudal peduncle depth 1.3-1.7 times in its length (vs. 1.5-2.0) (Ref. 59043).
Inhabits densely vegetated, shallow hot spring with mud bottom (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5010 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00813 (0.00393 - 0.01681), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (21 of 100) .
