Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 14.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 86798); common length : 8.9 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 12193); max. reported age: 4 years (Ref. 12193)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits gravel and rubble riffles and adjacent pools of clear, fast creeks and small to medium rivers (Ref. 86798). Common in cool, clear streams with rocky substrates. Feed on mayfly nymphs and other aquatic immatures, with some terrestrial insects during spring, while summer food consists mostly of insects taken at the surface, with aquatic immatures (Ref. 10294). Oviparous (Ref. 205), probably nest spawners like congeners.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00708 (0.00318 - 0.01574), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tmax=4).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (25 of 100) .
