Oceania: Northern, western and southeastern coasts of Tasmania; also from Flinders Island in Bass Strait and Wilson's Promontory, Victoria.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in swamps, drains and ponds. The species is likely capable of aestivation as individuals are sometimes encountered in mud or beneath logs or stones when pools dry up. Feeds partly on bottom detritus and insects.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.6   ±0.26 se; Based on food items.
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.
