Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 41 - 43. Diagnosis: This species differs from other species of Luciobarbus by the following combination of characters: 42-45 scales on the lateral line, 8-9 above lateral line and 5-6 below lateral line; insertion of the ventral fin is placed in the same edge of the dorsal fin origin; the last single fin ray is ossified in two/thirds of its length, deeply serrated with teeth in the middle part longer than the width of the ray; barbels long, the first barbel overpasses the preorbital distance while in other species it does not reach the preorbital distance, the second barbel usually has the same length than the postorbital distance while in other species it does not reach the postorbital distance; the ethmoid bone is wider than its length; the dorsal branch of the pharyngeal bone is long and forms an open angle with respect to the inferior branch; vertebrae 41-43; and gill rakers 14-17 (Ref. 114135).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is ubiquist generally inhabiting rivers with sandy and gravel substrates and in downstream muddy substrates; it is also present in reservoirs (Ref. 114135). From April to May the species migrates upstream for spawning (Ref. 114135).

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):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
