Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from its congeners in Balkan Peninsula by having the following characters: anal fin with a black mark on anterior half, formed by pigments along edge of rays, membranes hyaline; head length about equal to body depth; mouth subinferior, upper lip conspicuously projecting beyond lower jaw; scales on lateral line 40-44 + 2-3; dorsal fin with 8½ branched rays; anal fin with 8-9½ branched rays; posterior margin of anal fin slightly convex; distance between tips of first and last branched anal rays (with fin stretched out) greater than depth of caudal peduncle; head length 24-27% SL; dorsal origin above posterior extremity of pelvic base; dorso-hypural distance reaching middle of eye when reported forward from dorsal origin (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits streams to rivers with moderate to swift current. Feeds on a variety of plant and animal food. Spawns adhesive eggs of 1.8 mm in diameter in gravel (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=0.00832 (0.00399 - 0.01736), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
