Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cyprinidae (Minnows or carps) > Barbinae
Etymology: kottelati: Named for Maurice Kottelat, for his contribution to the knowledge of fish fauna of Europe and Asia.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Subtropical

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 28.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 77060)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 41 - 43. Can be separated from all congeners in Anatolia and Europe by the position of the dorsal-fin origin conspicuously behind the pelvic-fin origin (vs. directly above or very slightly behind) and by possessing 43-46 total lateral line scales (vs. 50-90 in all others, except Luciobarbus lydianus and Luciobarbus graecus). Additional characters useful to identify this species include: 14-15, modally 15, gill rakers on the first gill arch; lips thin; lower lip with a swollen median pad margined by a shallow groove in some specimens; last simple ray of the dorsal fin well ossified, with moderate serrae along posterior edge (Ref. 77060).
