Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from its congeners by having usually 49-59 + 2-3 scales on the lateral line, 4½-7 scale rows between lateral line and pelvic origin, and eye diameter 1.0-1.5 times snout length (Ref. 59043).

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

Europe: Spain and Portugal: Tagus, Guadiana, Odiel, Guadalquivir (except Jándula system) and southwestern Douro drainages. In Appendix III of the Bern Convention (protected fauna).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in the middle reaches of streams with moderate current and abundant aquatic vegetation (Ref. 59043) and in the lower reaches of rivers with slow current and abundant submerged plants (Ref. 26100). Feeds on invertebrates, plants (Ref. 26100) and zooplankton (Ref. 59043). Spawns from March to May. Threatened due to water abstraction and the introduction of other species (Ref. 26100).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00432 - 0.01334), b=3.14 (2.98 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for species & Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.30 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.22 (?); tm=1).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (37 of 100) .
