Asia: endemic to Erhai Lake in Yunnan Province, China.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits lake (Ref. 26563). Length type refers to body length (Ref. 26563). Stays in the open water area of the lake. Feeds mainly on zoobenthos, insect larva and plants. Spawning period from March to April. Local people call it "Chun-Yu" (spring fish), as it spawns early (Ref. 45563).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  .
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (45 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
