Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10. A species closely related to the P. meandri species group, but differs from all other species of Pseudophoxinus (P. burduricus, P. evliyae, P. maeandricus, P. maeandi, P. ninae and P. bataligilae) in adjacent regions by the following unique combination of characters: body depth at dorsal-fin origin 19.1-23.4 % SL; head length 26.9-31.4 % SL, its length 1.3-1.5 times in body depth, slender, narrow; caudal-peduncle length 1.6-2.0 times its depth; mouth almost superior, without a chin; lower lip projecting slightly beyond upper lip in most specimens; tip of mouth cleft at approximately level of middle of pupil; snout pointed , its length equal or greater than eye diameter; lateral line incomplete, with 30-50 perforated scales and 48-60+2 scales in lateral series; 11½-13½ scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin; 3-5½ scale rows between lateral line and anal-fin origin; a distinct black epidermal stripe from eye to caudal-fin base in preserved individuals, absent in living individuals; preoperculo-mandibular (CPM) and infraorbital (CIO) sensory canals disconnected, supraorbital canal (CSO) with 9-13 pores, CIO with 15-18 pores, CPM with 16-19 pores, and supratemporal canal (CST) with 14-16 pores (Ref. 115532).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±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) .
