Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 2-3; Anal soft rays: 6. Differs from its congeners in Caspian Sea basin by the possession of the following characters: longitudinal epithelial crests on predorsal scales; scale rows around caudal peduncle 14-16; scales on lateral line 42-43 + 2; dorsal fin with 7½ branched rays; and anal fin with 6½ branched rays (Ref. 59043).

Europe and Asia: Northern Caspian basin (Volga, Ural).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit bottom of moderately flowing lowland rivers, preferring sand bottom. Are nocturnal benthic species feeding on insect larvae and other larger benthic invertebrates. Locally threatened due to pollution and river engineering (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=0.00479 (0.00178 - 0.01286), b=3.19 (2.96 - 3.42), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.38 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tmax=5; tm=2).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
