Etymology: Alburnus: From the city of Al Bura, where the fish was known (Ref. 45335);  selcuklui: Named after The Great Selcuklu (Seljuk) Empire (1037-1194), originating from the branch of Oguz Turks, which controlled a vast area stretching from the Hindu Kush to eastern Anatolia and from Central Asia to the Persian Gulf.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 11.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 115533)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 14 - 15. Alburnus selcuklui can be diagnosed from other congeners in East Anatolia by the combination of the following characters: head short; snout rounded; anal-fin origin 0-4 scales behind dorsal fin-base; 70-80 + 3-4 scales on lateral line; 10-15 gill rakers; prominent epidermal lateral stripe; lateral body without black pigmentation along and below lateral line; 8½-9 branched dorsal-fin rays; and 11-12½ branched anal-fin rays. Other diagnostic characters include the following: a very weak ventral keel exposed for 8-16 scales in front of anus; head length 21-24 % SL, 0.9-1.2 times in body depth at dorsal-fin origin; predorsal length 52-56 % SL; caudal peduncle depth 9-11 % SL, caudal peduncle length 21-24 % SL; eye diameter 23-30 % head length, 0.78-1.08 times in interorbital distance; body depth at dorsal-fin origin 20-26 % SL; faint, dark lateral stripe on body; and caudal peduncle 2.0-2.6 times longer than deep (Ref. 115533).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a small branch of Botan stream from Tigris drainage characterized by stony-gravely stream bed and clean water. Flow rate in the stream is around 200-3000 liter/sc, changes with season and increases with the melt of snow in spring, but decreases in hot summer (Ref. 115533).

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=0.00661 (0.00257 - 0.01697), b=3.18 (2.95 - 3.41), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
