Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from other species of Barbus and Luciobarbus in Iberian Peninsula by having the following characters: lateral line with 45-49 + 3 scales; last simple dorsal ray slender, serrated posteriorly in juveniles, not serrated or only with very weak serrae in adults; posterior barbel not reaching posterior margin of eye; lower lip without median lobe; and lower jaw tip exposed, not covered by lower lip (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in water bodies of low-lying plains, with little current (Ref. 26100). Most common in the middle and lower reaches of rivers. Moves upstream stretches during spawning season (Ref. 59043). Threatened by pollution, habitat destruction and introduction of new species (Ref. 26100). Attains maximum size up to about 50 cm SL and lives up to at least 7 years (Ref. 59043).

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 (0.00639 - 0.01494), b=2.97 (2.84 - 3.10), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.24 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (32 of 100) .
