Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cyprinidae (Minnows or carps) > Alburninae
Etymology: Alburnoides: From the city of Al Bura, where the fish was known + particle Greek, oides = similar (Ref. 45335);  idignensis: Named for the Tigris River which was called Idigna in Sumerian (Akkadian: Idiklat; biblical: Hiddekel; Arabic: Dijlah; Turkish: Dicle).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-12; Anal soft rays: 12 - 17; Vertebrae: 38 - 40. Alburnoides idignensis is distinguished by a combination of the following characters: an unbranched ray of pectoral fin strongly lined with melanophores on its inner margin; eye with average size, the orbit diameter larger than the snout length and markedly smaller than the interorbital width; caudal fin lobes rounded and fin shallowly forked; a variably scaled ventral keel though most commonly scaled along about 1/3-2/3 of its length; a deep head with a markedly rounded, stout snout; a small mouth which is between terminal and subterminal; a tip of the mouth cleft on a level from the lower margin of the pupil; dorsal fin commonly with 8½ branched rays; anal fin with 10-12(13-14)½ branched rays; 41-49(50-51) total lateral line scales (39-49 scales to posterior margin of hypurals); commonly 2.5-4.2 or 2.4-4.2 pharyngeal teeth; total vertebrae 38-40, with a mode of 39; predorsal vertebrae 11-13; abdominal vertebrae 19- 20; caudal vertebrae 19-20; a caudal vertebral region most commonly one vertebra shorter or one vertebra longer than the abdominal region; the most common vertebral formulae are 20+19 and 19+20, and the difference between the abdominal and caudal counts averaging 0 (Ref. 82592).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits springs and qanats (Ref. 106248); also bushy shore, with some plants in water and stone river bed (Ref. 82592). Occurs sympatrically with Barbus lacerta, Alburnus mossulensis, Cobitis avicennae, Capoeta aculeata, Cyprinion macrostomum, Garra rufa, Oxynoemacheilus kiabii, and Oxynoemacheilus kermanshahensis (Ref. 106248).

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 (0.00372 - 0.01857), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, 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):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (23 of 100) .
