Common names: [No common name]
Occurrence: endemic
Salinity: freshwater
Abundance: | Ref:
Importance: of no interest | Ref: Crivelli, A.J., 1996

Regulations: | Ref:
Uses: no uses
Comments: Found only in Tuscany and Latium regions (Arno, Ombrone and Tiber river basins). Has disappeared from the main basin, but recorded from upper River Farma, La Gonna Brook, Lanzo Brook and Gretano River with reduced populations. The population in River Ombrone is decreasing due to the introduction and then competition with Chondrostoma genei. A similar situation has been reported in the Tiber in central Italy (Ref. 45688). Spawns in shallow riffle habitats in fast-flowing water (Ref. 59043). Threatened due to the introduction of other species, pollution (Ref. 26100), habitat alterations and water abstraction (Ref. 59043). Also Ref. 12255, 26100, 27118, 94493. Status of threat: endangered (Ref. 59043).

Short description

Differs from its congeners in Apennine Peninsula by the following characters: dorsal fin with 7½ branched rays; anal fin with 8½ branched rays; posterior margin of anal fin convex or almost straight; scales on lateral line 37-40 + 3; and a row of black pigments along free margin of each flank scale, forming a regular reticulate pattern (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in small to medium-sized premontane streams with Mediterranean water regime. May be confined to very small pools during summer (Ref. 59043). Inhabits brooks, brooklets and small rivers. Feeds on invertebrates (Ref. 26100). Spawns in shallow riffle habitats in fast-flowing water (Ref. 59043). Threatened due to the introduction of other species, pollution (Ref. 26100), habitat alterations and water abstraction (Ref. 59043).

IUCN Red List Status (Ref. 90363)
