Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from its congeners in Europe by the combination of the following characters: 37-40 scales along lateral line; anal fin with 9½ branched rays; 11-14 gill rakers; dorsal head profile straight, snout pointing forward, tip above level of middle eye; back not humped behind nape; eye not close to dorsal head profile when viewed laterally; head length 29-31% SL; articulation of lower jaw below or in front of anterior margin of eye; ventral head profile with a conspicuous angle at articulation of lower jaw; and all fins dark grey in adults (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits well vegetated rivers, backwaters, oxbows, ponds, and lakes. Attains a maximum size of about 20 cm SL (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00794 (0.00464 - 0.01359), b=3.16 (3.01 - 3.31), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (46 of 100) .
