Etymology: Alburnoides: From the city of Al Bura, where the fish was known + particle Greek, oides = similar (Ref. 45335);  economoui: Named for Dr. Alcibiades N. Economou, for his significant contributions to the biogeography and ecology of the Greek ichthyofauna.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-12; Anal soft rays: 15 - 17. Alburnoides economoui is distinguished from all its congeners in Greece by having a completely or almost completely scaleless ventral keel. Additional combination of diagnostic characters include the following: snout conical and slightly pointed; snout length shorter than eye diameter; mouth terminal, uppermost point of cleft below level of the middle of the eye to the lower margin of pupil; mouth cleft in lateral view considerably slanted and curved in its posterior part; relatively deep caudal peduncle (its depth 2.2?2.5 times in body depth at dorsal fin origin); dorsal fin usually with 8 1/2 branched rays; anal fin usually with 13 1/2 branched rays; lateral line with 42?47 + 0?2 pored scales; usually 9 scales between lateral line and dorsal fin origin and 3?4 scales between lateral line and midline of the belly; 19?24 pre-dorsal scales; pelvic-fin origin about midway between pectoral-fin and anal-fin origins or slightly closer to anal-fin origin; caudal fin clearly forked with lobes moderately pointed (Ref. 116746).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Prefers to inhabit streams and rivers with fast flowing well-oxygenated waters usually with cobble- pebble substrate, but also lowland cool water habitats as well. Also occurs in cool-water canals and spring-fed ditches of the lower Spercheios floodplain. Usually collected together with Salmo fariodes Karaman, 1938, Squalius vardarensis Karaman, 1928, Barbus sperchiensis Stephanidis, 1950, Luciobarbus graecus (Steindachner, 1896), Pungitius hellenicus Stephanidis, 1971, Rutilus sp. Spercheios and Pelasgus marathonicus (Vinciguerra, 1921) (Ref. 116746).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
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 (10 of 100) .
