North America: endemic to Guzman basin, northern Mexico.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits spring, most adults occur in the upper meter of the water column and near the margins of the cattails or in the growth of cattails surrounding the spring. Few individuals are found in the open water column and near the substrate; relatively few fish are seen in the shallow marginal waters. Forms schools of at least 500-600 individuals .

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=0.00871 (0.00419 - 0.01809), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
