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

Africa: present in the Rusizi River basin, but also found in the Luiche River drainage (Ref. 27292, 78218, 87986).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs rocky or sandy-rocky substrates of rivers with rapidly flowing waters; feeds on algae which grow on rocks in the river and cascades; is probably also an insectivore since some specimens which were examined showed the presence of insect larvae in their stomachs (Ref. 27627). Oviparous (Ref. 205).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous (Ref. 205). Distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).

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=0.00575 (0.00233 - 0.01419), b=3.12 (2.90 - 3.34), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.6   ±0.26 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (50 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
