Korte beschrijving Morfologie | Morfometrie

Adult preserved specimens gray-brown dorsally, white ventrally, with a dark blotch on 2nd dorsal fin; tail dark. Teeth on disk blunt and weakly cornified. Tongue teeth poorly developed and blunt. Typical length 12-17 cm TL (Ref. 43939). Trunk myomeres 66-72 (Ref. 43938, 89241). Other adult diagnostic features: 12.2-18.8 cm TL. Body proportions, as percentage of TL (based on 68 specimens measuring 12.2-18.8 cm TL): prebranchial length, 9.3-14.9; branchial length, 8.7?11.6; trunk length, 45.4-53.5; tail length, 25.7-33.5; eye length, 1.7-3.2; disc length, 3.8-7.3. Urogenital papilla length, as a percentage of branchial length, in a 14.1 cm TL spawning male, 26.9. The shape of the second dorsal fin in spawning males is arch-like and in females triangular. Dentition: supraoral lamina, 2 unicuspid teeth (1 of 34 specimens had 2 additional small unicuspid teeth on the bridge); infraoral lamina, 6-11 teeth, the lateralmost one on each side unicuspid or bicuspid and the internal ones unicuspid; 3 endolaterals on each side; endolateral formula, 2-2-2; 3 rows of anterials; first row of anterials, 3-5 unicuspid teeth; total number of anterials, 23-38 unicuspid teeth; exolaterals absent or one or two unicuspid exolaterals present in each lateral field, exceptionally, one complete row of exolaterals on each side; single row of posterials, 17-24 unicuspid teeth; transverse lingual lamina, 9-15 unicuspid teeth, the median one greatly enlarged; longitudinal lingual laminae each with 6-13 unicuspid teeth. Velar tentacles, 5-7, with tubercles and with the single median tentacle shorter than the lateral tentacles immediately next to it. Body coloration (preserved) in mature adults is gray brown on the upper surface and flanks and whitish on the lower surface. Lateral line neuromasts unpigmented. Gular region unpigmented (2 of 64 specimens had weak pigmentation). Second dorsal fin with a dark blotch near the apex (4 of 64 specimens did not have a blotch). Extent of caudal fin pigmentation, 1% to <25% (17% of specimens), 25% to <75% (36%) or, 75% or more (46%). Caudal fin shape, spade-like. Oral papillae, 18 (Ref. 89241).

Biologie     Verklarende woordenlijst (b.v. epibenthic)

Freshwater, in creeks and rivers (Ref. 89241). A non-parasitic lamprey. At about 4 years of age transforms from ammocoete in fall, moves downstream into lakes over winter; spawns the following spring and summer in shallow of lakes and rivers (Ref. 43939). Spawning period between 11 June and 25 September in Naknek River Basin, Alaska. Fecundity, 2,188-3,477 eggs/female. Egg length, 0.9 mm (Ref. 89241).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00117 (0.00051 - 0.00272), b=3.00 (2.80 - 3.20), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Weerstandsvermogen (Ref. 120179):  laag, minimale populatieverdubbelingstijd 4,5-14 jaar (tm=tmax=5).
Kwetsbaarheid (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
