Diagnostic Description

Head very broad (width 28-31% SL, 96-109% HL); body dark brown marbled or with narrow vermiculations, and low and anteriorly truncate first dorsal fin. Distinguished from highly similar species Cottus hispaniolensis by the following characters: pelvic fins hyaline or with faint brown marks; low and anteriorly truncate first dorsal fin; last dorsal-fin ray connected to body by a membrane along 1/3-2/3 of its length; last anal-fin ray not connected to body by a membrane; and fewer lateral line pores (31-32+1). Differs also from other Cottus in Atlantic drainages by the following characters: caudal peduncle stout (length 14-18% SL, depth 8-10% SL and 1.5-2.1 times in its length); no prickling in adults, a few prickles under pectoral fin in juveniles; eye diameter 20-25% of HL; interorbital distance 1.1-1.4 times in eye diameter; no membrane between last pelvic-fin ray and body; membranes between pelvic-fin rays wider distally (Ref. 55856).

Justification
Known from the Adour and Nivelle drainages (France, Spain), with an estimated area of occupancy of less than 2,000 km and an extent of occurrence of less than 20,000 km, however there are no known current or potential threats to the species. Even droughts are not thought to be a threat as the drainages have their headwaters in the Pyrenees.
