Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Eudontomyzon graecus is distinguished from its European congeners by possessing the following character states: nonparasitic mode of life; adults with large, blunt labial teeth covering all fields in a pavement-like arrangement; one or more bicuspid teeth in the first anterial row; two or more bicuspid teeth in the first posterial row; 7-11 teeth on the infraoral lamina; endolateral formula, 2-2-2; 2-5 velar tentacles without wings; ammocoetes and adults with 53-61 trunk myomeres; rounded caudal fin; relatively longer tail length against TL; ammocoetes with relatively shorter trunk length against TL; weakly pigmented (i.e., +) upper lip; unpigmented tongue precursor bulb; unpigmented areas lateral to the tongue precursor elastic ridge (Ref. 84195).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00115 (0.00049 - 0.00271), b=3.01 (2.80 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.2 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):  Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
