Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from other species of Barbus and Luciobarbus in Balkan Peninsula by having the following characters: 39-44 + 2 scales on lateral line; 18-20 scale rows around caudal peduncle; snout with large tubercles in large individuals; last simple dorsal ray slender, serrated posteriorly along half to entire length; posterior margin of dorsal fin straight; and lower lip thin, without median lobe (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits lakes and streams with stone and gravel bottom (Ref. 59043). Occurs in water bodies in low-lying plains with little current. Feeds on invertebrates and algae. Threatened by water abstraction and pollution (Ref. 26100). Size reaches up to at least 50 cm SL (Ref. 59043).

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

Eggs hatch in 5 days at 22°C (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=0.00603 (0.00301 - 0.01207), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.29 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (61 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
