Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10; Vertebrae: 36 - 39. This species is diagnosed from all congeners from Anatolia by the following unique combination of characters: head short, its length equal or slightly greater than body depth at dorsal fin origin; mouth slightly subterminal, the tip of the mouth cleft on approximately level of with lower margin of eye; snout rounded, its length greater than eye diameter; a faint and diffuse epidermal black stripe from eye to caudal fin base in alive and preserved individuals; pared fins and caudal peduncle distinctly sexual dimorphic (male with longer pelvic and pectoral fins and slenderer caudal peduncle); lateral line incomplete, with 21-37 (commonly 26-37) perforated scales and 47-57+1-2 scales in lateral series (commonly 50-55); 10½-12½ scale rows between lateral line and dorsal fin origin; 3-4 rarely 5 scale rows between lateral line and the pelvic fin origin; 7-8 (9) gill rakers on the first branchial arch; pharyngeal teeth 5-4 or 5-5, slightly serrated and hooked at tip; dorsal fin commonly with 7 (8)½ branched rays; anal fin with 6 (7)½ branched rays (Ref. 94468).

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=0.00955 (0.00625 - 0.01460), b=3.21 (3.09 - 3.33), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.2 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 (22 of 100) .
