Freshwater; demersal.   Temperate

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?, range 4 - ? cm
Max length : 6.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59043); 9.0 cm SL (female); max. reported age: 5 years (Ref. 59043)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Single, conspicuous, comma-shaped black spot at upper caudal base. Postdorsal blotches 1-3 squarish, with straight or concave lateral margins. Depth of caudal peduncle 1.3-1.9 times its length.

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Europe: Neretva and Trebisnjica drainages in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Cobitis populations in Jadova polje and Mostarsko Blato in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina may represent unnamed species (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabit lake and river shores on sand bottom (Ref. 59043). Oviparous, possibly with distinct pairing during breeding similar to congeners (Ref. 205). Are batch spawners (Ref. 59043). Population is threatened by the construction of Neretva dam and competition from introduced species (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00380 (0.00181 - 0.00797), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), based on LWR estimates for species & Genus-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  0.0   ±0.0 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tmax=5).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
