Max length : 3.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 95534)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal soft rays: 5. This species is distinguished from all congeners in the Middle East by the following combination of characters: more slender and longer caudal peduncle (caudal peduncle length 19.5-21.0 % SL vs. 17.7-19.0 in Turcinoemacheilus kosswigi); more anterior position of the anus, which is in the middle (or in front) of the distance between the pelvic-fin and the anal-fin origins (vs. behind the middle in T. hafezi and T. bahaii); very small size, up to 3.8 cm SL observed (vs. larger in all other species); and ten fixed nucleotide substitutions in the mtDNA COI barcode region studied, one of them non-silent and thus leading to an amino-acid change from isoleucine to valine (Ref. 95534).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The Göksu at the type locality of the species has about 30 m width, substrate consisting of coarse gravel and boulders, and fast-running water (Ref. 95534).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00661 (0.00312 - 0.01398), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-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 (10 of 100) .
