Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from other species of Barbus and Luciobarbus in Iberian Peninsula by having the following combination of characters: last simple dorsal ray moderately spinous, serrated posteriorly only along about half of its length in adults, serrae small, rarely absent; posterior edge of dorsal fin slightly concave, upper part of posterior edge at an angle to dorsal profile when fin is stretched; lower lip without median lobe or pad; tip of lower jaw exposed, not covered by lower lip; head length 25-28% SL; and lateral line with 44-49 + 3 scales (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits the middle and lower reaches of streams with slow current (Ref. 59043). Feeds on benthic invertebrates, detritus (Ref. 59043), plants and fish (Ref. 26100). Considered a long-lived species (Ref. 26100). Attains a maximum size of about 80 cm SL (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 (0.00606 - 0.01650), b=3.01 (2.87 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.42 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (K=0.09-0.19).
Prior r = 0.42, 2 SD range = 0.23 - 0.75, log(r) = -0.87, SD log(r) = 0.3, Based on: 3 K, 3 tgen, 1 tmax, records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (70 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
