The recognition and identification of the two species of Spicara genus ( Spicara flexuosa, picarel and Spicara maena, blotched picarel ) is difficult, due to a systematic confusion until now. In the present work a number of external morphometric features (ten body ratios) are evaluated for their diagnostic possibilities. According to Principal Component Analysis results, the body ratios head length to standard length, head height to head length and the ratios of two body heights, indicated that… Expand
