Found in a forest creek, apparently in the Ka Longo drainage (marks the border between Vietnam and China (known as Beilun He). It is a small stream in the foothills. The specimens were collected in a shallow bay (less than 40 cm deep), with slow water current and sandy bottom, adjacent to riffles (Ref. 75046).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00501 (0.00201 - 0.01247), b=3.08 (2.87 - 3.29), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 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) .
