Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 7 - 9. Diagnosis: Distinguished from other cyprinids except Notropis buccatus by having a modified infraorbital and preoperculomandibular canals. It differs from N. buccatus by possessing longer gill rakers (length to width average 2.2, 4.8-2.5 vs. 1.0, 0.8-1.4), absence of breast squamation (vs. with scales), and possessing 5 infraorbital ossicles (vs. 4) (Ref. 57709).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [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):  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) .
