Can be diagnosed from its congeners in Balkan Peninsula by the following characters: not projecting upper lip; mouth terminal; head length 1.0-1.2 times body depth, 25-29% SL; eye diameter 20-26% HL; 41-44 + 2-3 scales on lateral line; dorsal fin with 8½ branched rays; anal fin usually with 8½ branched rays; distance between tips of first and last branched anal rays (with fin stretched out) about equal to or slightly greater than caudal peduncle depth; and distal margin of anal fin convex (Ref. 59043).
Inhabits streams with flowing, clear water. Grows up to about 16 cm SL (Ref. 59043).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 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
): 3.3 ±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
