Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from other species of Barbus and Luciobarbus in Iberian Peninsula by having the following characters: lateral line with 43-48 + 2-3 scales; last simple dorsal ray slender, not serrated posteriorly in adults, occasionally with a few small, widely set serrae in individuals smaller than about 15 cm SL; posterior barbel reaching beyond posterior margin of eye; lower lip thick, without median lobe; and lower jaw tip covered by lower lip (Ref. 59043).

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

Europe: Spain from Ebro to Ter drainages on Mediterranean slope and westward to Ason drainage on Atlantic slope. Introduced to central Italy in Fiora, Ombrone and Albegna drainages.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits lower and middle reaches of rivers with slow current, preferring areas with vegetation and shore cover. Migrates upstream areas with faster current and gravel or stone bottom for spawning (Ref. 59043). Feeds on invertebrates and plants (Ref. 26100) and algae (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=0.00646 (0.00519 - 0.00804), b=3.16 (3.09 - 3.23), based on LWR estimates for this species (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.29 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Very Low, minimum population doubling time more than 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (56 of 100) .
