Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 14 - 16; Vertebrae: 40 - 41. Can be diagnosed by the combination of the following characters: eye large, the orbit width exceeding both the snout length and the interorbital width; scaled ventral keel behind the pelvic fins along the abdomen to the anus, commonly 43-47 lateral line scales to posterior margin of hypurals; 2.5-4.2 pharyngeal teeth; dorsal fin usually with 8½ branched rays; anal fin with 10-12½ branched rays; 40-41 total vertebrae, and the caudal vertebral region equal or longer then the abdominal with region, vertebral formulae 20+20 or 20+21 (Ref. 81462).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Encountered in qanat stream with clear and colorless water, conductivity 0.475 mS, slow to medium current, and bottom consisting of gravel and mud (Ref. 81462).

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=0.00832 (0.00366 - 0.01891), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 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 (33 of 100) .
