Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 10; Raggi anali molli: 10. Phoxinus apollonicus is unequivocally distinguished from all other congeners by the reduced number of teeth on pharyngeal bones, usually four teeth on external row, but also 3 or 2, and 1 or 0 in the inner row. It also differs from other congeners by the combination of the following characters: the holotype has patches of breast scales connected anteriorly; the lateral line is nearly completed, posteriorly reaching the vertical line crossing the upper and the lower insertion of the caudal fin; flank of body with a marked mid-lateral longitudinal stripe extending from tip of snout to the base of caudal fin; a distinct spot at base of the caudal fin; a marked black spot on the opercular bone; depth of caudal peduncle, 2.2-2.8 times in its length and 1.8-2.5 in body depth; and eye diameter less than the preorbital distance(Ref. 105385).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00400 - 0.02500), b=3.06 (2.85 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
