Etymology: Salmo: Latin, salmo, Plinius = salmon (Ref. 45335); pellegrini: This species is named in honor of J. Pellegrin, for his help and knowledge of the North African fish fauna (Ref. 119427).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Subtropical
Africa: Tensift basin and Oum er Rbia basin in Morocco (Ref. 107622).

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 20.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 107622)
Morphology | Morphometrics
(total): 16. Diagnosis: The more elongated body shape, the convex margin of the dorsal and anal fins, the shape of the adipose fin and the caudal fin, and the body colouration distinguish this species from Salmo macrostigma (Ref. 119427).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00457 (0.00178 - 0.01174), b=3.10 (2.87 - 3.33), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.5 ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (15 of 100).
