Morphology | Morphometrics
Diagnosed from its congeners by having the following characters: conspicuous black midlateral stripe in preserved individuals; 71-79 scales along lateral line; dorsal fin with 7½ branched rays; anal fin with 8½ branched rays; 8-9 gill rakers; and caudal peduncle depth 2.0-2.2 times in its length (Ref. 59043).
Europe: Krka drainage in Cikola, Croatia.
Inhabits slow-flowing and still water. Possibly enters subterranean waters during winter or droughts (Ref. 59043). Occurs in water courses on the low plains, with little current and in lakes. Feeds on invertebrates. Threatened due to water abstraction and pollution (Ref. 26100).
