North America: Atlantic slope, from the Papaloapán River to the Chachalacas River basin in Mexico.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits lakes, preferring mesotrophic waters with a mud or sand bottom. Some populations have migrated into the lower river valleys with slow to moderate flowing waters. Feeds mainly on plant and vegetable matter supplemented by invertebrates and aquatic insects.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.27 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (21 of 100) .
