Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from other cyprinids in southeastern Europe by the possession of the following characters: incomplete lateral line, with perforating 11-17 scales; 27-23 total scales in midlateral row; dorsal fin with 6-8½ branched rays; anal fin with 7-9½ branched rays; broad dark midlateral stripe from head to caudal base, separating dark brown back from white belly (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A short-lived species which inhabits lakes, rivers, springs, and associated wetlands (Ref. 26100). Found in slow-flowing stretches of streams, especially roots of trees, bank cavities and among vegetation. Larvae occur along banks among vegetation. Feeds on aquatic invertebrates and algae, mainly on plant material in summer. Juveniles and adults die in large number during summer and autumn drought. Spawns among aquatic vegetation, especially filamentous algae. Threatened due to water abstraction in dry season and habitat destruction (Ref. 59043).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

A fractional spawner. Eggs are adhesive, 1.3 mm in diameter and hatch in 4 days (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=0.01000 (0.00679 - 0.01474), b=3.16 (3.04 - 3.28), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.24 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tmax=3).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100) .
