Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits swamps and quiet backwaters of streams with mud or gravel bottoms and abundant vegetation including water lilies. Usually found in waters exposed to full sunlight (Ref. 2847, 44894). Occurs in marshy ponds (billabongs), overflow pools of rivers and creeks (Ref. 44894) Occurs at temperatures ranging from 25°-35° C. Possibly more widespread, but has escaped detection due to its small size and inconspicuous appearance (Ref. 44894).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
