Etymology: Alburnoides: From the city of Al Bura, where the fish was known + particle Greek, oides = similar (Ref. 45335);  parhami: Named for all the Iranian conservative officers who sacrificed their lives in order to keep the wild environment, and especially for Mr. Saeid Parham (1980 - 2009), the conservative officer in Khorasan-e-Shomali Province, who was killed in a battle with illegal hunters near the type locality (near the border of Turkmenistan).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-12; Anal soft rays: 14 - 17; Vertebrae: 39 - 41. Alburnoides parhami is distinguished from other congeners in Iran by a combination of the following characters: ventral keel most commonly sharp, scaleless; snout long, slightly pointed; mouth terminal with the tip of the mouth cleft on a level with the upper half of the pupil; absence of well-marked spots or dark pigmentation in the lateral line canal; eye large, orbit width about equal to interorbital width); 46-51 lateral line scales to posterior margin of hypurals; commonly 2.5-5.2 pharyngeal teeth; commonly 8½ branched rays on dorsal fin; commonly 12½ or 13½ branched rays on anal fin; typically 10 scale rows between lateral line and dorsal fin origin; 39-41, usually 40-41, total vertebrae; caudal vertebral region equal or slightly longer than abdominal region (most frequent vertebral formulae 20 + 20 and 20 + 21); and usually 12 or 13 predorsal vertebrae (Ref. 106248).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality, stream Baba-Aman, at the time of the collection had non-clear water, medium to fast water flow, width of about 3-5 m and maximum depth of up to 1.5 m, grassy shores, submergent plants, and stream bed composed of gravel and mud. Found syntopic with Capoeta gracilis (Keyserling, 1861), Luciobarbus mursa (Guldenstadt, 1773), and Paracobitis atrakensis Esmaeili et al., 2014. (Ref. 106248).

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=0.00832 (0.00366 - 0.01891), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
