Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from its congeners by the possession of the following characters: lateral line usually with 40-45 + 3 scales; 4-5 scale rows between lateral line and pelvic fin origin; 14 circumpeduncular scale rows; eye diameter equal to or greater than snout length; snout rounded, obtuse; and ventral profile of head without marked angle at articulation of lower jaw (Ref. 59043).

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

Europe: Spain and Portugal in most drainages from Jucar northward and headwaters of Tagus, except northern slope. Introduced in Guadiana drainage.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A short-lived species which lives in lakes and mountain streams, including the middle reaches of rivers (Ref. 11240). Also found in reservoirs in hilly areas. Juveniles occur in shallow areas with slow current and move to deeper and faster waters in late July. Opportunistic feeder, but preying mainly on aquatic invertebrates (Ref. 59043). Threatened due to pollution, habitat destruction and the introduction of other species (Ref. 26100).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00794 (0.00379 - 0.01665), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.37 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=1-4; K= 0.25).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
