Etymology: albus: The specific name albus is derived from the Latin word albus, meaning white.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; pelagic.   Temperate, preferred ?

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

Europe: Lake Skadar in Montenegro; Zeta and Moraca river systems, both flowing into Lake Skadar.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 20.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 87899)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 11; Vertebrae: 38 - 40. Based on materials from Moraca-Zeta river system which flows into the Lake Skadar, Leucos albus can be distinguished from its closest relative L. basak by having higher number of pored scales on lateral line 41-44 (vs. 37-39 in L. basak) and 9 modal number of dorsal branched rays (vs. 8 in L. albus). Flanks are silvery, without lateral bands as observed in L. aula (Ref. 96829).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Prefers to inhabit sub-lacustrine springs of Lake Skadar, where large numbers of fish gather during the winter period. Coexists with Leuocos basak in Lake Skadar, with 20:1 proportion in favor of Leuocos basak (Ref. 96829).

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=0.00813 (0.00393 - 0.01681), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.2 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):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
