Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: head length 29-31% SL; eye diameter 16-21% HL; anal rays 14-16; total scales in midlateral series 43-49 (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits a variety of slow-flowing or still waters; usually associated with dense vegetation or coarse rocks. Spawns for the first time at 1-2 years, and usually only for 1 to 2 seasons, April-August with females spawning more than once during a season. Males guard the eggs which are deposited in cavities; larvae and juvenile are benthic. Feeds on benthic invertebrates. It is invasive in Volga where reportedly, the spreading was due to canalization of main river and reservoirs or slow-flowing waters created by hydroelectric plants (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00427 - 0.01860), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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 (21 of 100) .
