Diagnosed from its congeners in Black Sea basin by the possession of the following characters: dorsal fin with 7½ branched rays; anal fin with 6½ branched rays; anus midway between pelvic and anal origins; absence of scales between pectoral bases; longitudinal epithelial crests on predorsal scales restricted to posterior scale margin (Ref. 59043).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00575 (0.00271 - 0.01223), b=3.14 (2.97 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.3 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
