Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 41 - 42. Diagnosis: Luciobarbus rabatensis differs from other species of Luciobarbus by the following combination of characters: number of scales on lateral line 45-50; number of scales above lateral line 8.5-10.5; number of scales below lateral line 6.5-7.5; insertion of dorsal and ventral fins is in the same vertical plane; last single fin ray is ossified, with deep denticulations along its length; denticulations at mid-height of the ray are equal to or longer than ray width; in adult specimens, the inferior lip is retracted revealing the dentary; the ethmoid bone is wider than its length; the maxilla showed a large palatine process; vertebrae 41-42; and gill rakers 12-14 (Ref. 107580).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species inhabits rivers of different typologies and is present in reservoirs (Ref. 107580). Spawning takes place at the end of April and the beginning of May; at that time, individuals migrate upstream for spawning in cold and oxygenated waters where the females excavate a nest in the gravel (Ref. 107580).

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=0.00977 (0.00374 - 0.02556), b=3.02 (2.79 - 3.25), 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 to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
