Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from congeners present in Iran by the following characters: marbled colour pattern of the body without distinct bars on the flank (vs. vertical bars in all congeners except P. turcmenica); body thin and elongated (vs. stout in P. cristata, P. bampurensis, P. ilamensis, P. nielseni); no dorsal adipose keel (vs. presence of a deep dorsal adipose keel with procurrent rays in P. cristata); incomplete lateral line extending to the dorsal-fin base (vs. complete and reaching to caudal-fin base in P. cristata; lateral line usually reaching beyond dorsal fin base in P. hormuzensis, P. bampurensis); scattered scales on body (vs. completely scaleless in P. kessleri, P. turcmenica; none on predorsal flank in P. abdolii); snout blunt (vs. pointed in P. hormuzensis, P. bampurensis); suborbital groove in males (vs. without suborbital flap or groove in P. naumanni, P. aredvii; suborbital flap in P. bampurensis, P. hormuzensis, P. susiani, P. ilamensis) (Ref. 106249).

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=0.00562 (0.00250 - 0.01267), b=3.05 (2.87 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±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 (11 of 100) .
