Asia: Mekong basin.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits high gradient streams with boulder or bedrock substrates. Feed on benthic insects, and may ingest small amounts of phytoplankton and periphyton. Not fished commercially, but can probably be taken with dip-net and traps (Ref. 12693).
