Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 38 - 41. Diagnosed from congeners by the possession of the following characters: large eye, diameter 26-29% HL, equal to or larger than snout length; conical snout, not stout, terminal mouth; thickened skin especially in adults during spawning season; scales distinct or not, covering whole body, often narrowly to widely separated in particular in pre-pelvic area; lateral line interrupted or not, usually ending on caudal peduncle; and pored lateral line scales usually 54-70 (Ref. 59043).

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Introductions | Faunafri

Europe: Vrljika drainage and Lake Crveno in Imotsko polje, Matica and Norin drainages (Croatia); Tihaljina and Trebizat system in Neretva drainage (Bosnia-Herzegovina).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits streams, lakes and springs with clear water. Enters subterranean waters during winter or droughts (Ref. 59043). Threatened due to pollution and habitat destruction (Ref. 26100).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00918 (-0.15001 - 0.16837), b=3.08 (2.99 - 3.17), based on LWR estimates for this family-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
