Europe: Loughs Leane and Muckross in Ireland, United Kingdom. Believed to have existed or that similar charrs existed in Loughs Tay, Dan (Wicklow), Acoose (Kerry), and Nalughraman (Donegal).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 18.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59043)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from congeners in Ireland by having obtuse snout, rounded dorsal profile and shorter lower jaw, included in upper jaw when mouth is closed. Additional character useful for identification is its body depth, 20-25% SL (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Lacustrine. Threatened due to eutrophication (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=0.00977 (0.00470 - 0.02030), b=3.03 (2.86 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (31 of 100) .
