Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from other species of Barbus and Luciobarbus in Iberian Peninsula by having the following characters: orbit close to but not reaching dorsal head profile when viewed laterally; last simple dorsal ray spinous, serrated posteriorly along 1/2- 2/3 of its length; lateral line with 44-50 + 2-3 scales; head length 26-32% SL; snout length 2.2-2.9 times in HL; lower lip thick, with (70% of individuals) or without median pad; lower jaw tip covered by lower lip (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in water bodies on low-lying plains, with little current (Ref. 26100). Also inhabits upper reaches of rivers with slow current. Preys mainly on planktonic crustaceans, supplemented by insects and algae (Ref. 59043). Threatened by pollution, habitat destruction and introduction of other species (Ref. 26100). Size reaches up to at least 40 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=0.00617 (0.00316 - 0.01202), b=3.04 (2.88 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
