soft rays: 8;
Vertebrae: 42 - 43. Together with Barbatula altayensis and B. sawadai, this species differs from all other congeners from northern Asia by having the body scaled predorsally (vs. body scaled posterior to the dorsal-fin origin, or scales only on the caudal-fin base). It can be distinguished from B. altayensis and B. sawadai in having widely separated nostril (vs. closely-set) and further from B. altayensis in having 42-43 vertebrae (vs. 44-45), and further from B. sawadai in having 7 branched dorsal-fin rays (vs. 8) (Ref. 93050).

= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00951 (-0.19424 - 0.21325), b=2.99679 (2.88596 - 3.10761), based on LWR estimates for this family-BS (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 2.6 ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
