Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Nemacheilidae ()
Etymology: Barbatula: Diminutive of Latin barba,-ae = beard (Ref. 45335);  gibba: From the Latin word ‘gibbus’ (humped), in reference to the greatly convex predorsal profile of the body.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 40 - 42. Distinguished from all other species of Barbatula from northern Asia by its nearly columnar anterior body (vs. slightly compressed) and greatly convex predorsal profile of the body (vs. slightly convex or straight). It is similar to B. nuda in having a scaleless predorsal body, by which both can be distinguished all other congeners from northern Asia, with sparsely, or fully scaled predorsal bodies. Can be further diagnosed from B. nuda in having widely separated nostrils (vs. closely-set) and an upper lip with a slight and shallow median indentation (vs. marked and deep median indentation) (Ref. 93050).

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=0.00631 (0.00296 - 0.01347), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 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 (20 of 100) .
