Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from its congeners in Balkan Peninsula by the following characters: upper lip projecting beyond lower jaw; mouth subinferior; distal margin of anal straight; distance between tips of first and last branched anal rays (with fin stretched out) less than depth of caudal peduncle; head length 26-27% SL; body depth 22-25% SL; eye diameter 1.4-1.7 times in interorbital distance 43-47 + 2-3 scales on lateral line; caudal peduncle length 18-21% SL; scales of dorsal half of flank with a black margin on posterior edge and no or very few pigment on scale pocket; dorsal fin usually with 8½ branched rays; and anal fin usually with 9½ branched rays (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) .
