Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from other gobies in freshwaters of Adriatic basin and western Italy by the following characters: males with small black spots on body; with cephalic lateral line canals; anterior oculoscapular canal extending to snout; branched rays in second dorsal 8-9.5; anal origin below simple of first branched ray of D2; total scales in midlateral series 36-42; completely scaled caudal peduncle (Ref. 59043).

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

Europe: Adriatic coasts, from Po delta (Italy) to Neretva (Croatia). Introduced in Lake Trasimeno, Central Italy. (Ref.59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in inshore habitats, lagoons, lakes and large to medium-size rivers; on sand or mud bottom. Spawns after first winter in March-July; individual females spawn several times during a season. Adhesive eggs deposited under or between stones, shells and aquatic plants and males guard the eggs until hatching. Feeds on a wide variety of benthic invertebrates (worms, amphipods, Ref.4696) (Ref.59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00723 - 0.05508), b=2.84 (2.60 - 3.08), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.41 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
