Europe: Angitis system in the Strymon drainage in Greece (Ref. 75055). Aegean Sea basin, Struma drainage (Greece, probably Bulgaria). Phoxinus populations in Loudias and Filiouris drainages in Greece are possibly conspecific (Ref. 59043).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 4.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75055)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from its congeners in Europe by the absence or having only small patches of breast scales, caudal peduncle depth 2.1-2.5 times in its length, head length 27-29% SL, predorsal length 56-60% SL, pre-anal length 62-68% SL, and anal fin origin usually in front of base of last dorsal ray (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs among dense vegetation in shallow water in a small creek fed with spring water and in a canal in cultivated areas in the plain (Ref. 75055). Most abundant in small streams with clear and cold water (Ref. 59043).

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=0.00891 (0.00387 - 0.02054), b=3.06 (2.85 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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 (12 of 100) .
