Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Introductions | Faunafri

Asia: Chao Phraya and Mekong basins (Ref. 12693). Reported from Maeklong River (Ref. 26336).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occur near the surface of ponds, canals and streams. Often found in turbid waters. Probably feed mostly on exogenous insects and also on some algae. Spawning sites are found in rivers and ponds (Ref. 33813). Mature adults probably breed during the rainy season. Occasionally sold fresh. Probably used to make prahoc (Ref. 12693).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00490 (0.00206 - 0.01166), b=3.08 (2.87 - 3.29), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.6   ±0.28 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 to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
