Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in deep area of lake, below 80 m. Occurs and feeds on the bottom. Feeds predominantly on cocoons of Turbellaria and copepods. Spawns on pebble bottom at depths around 60-80 m (Ref. 59043).

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=0.00955 (0.00466 - 0.01957), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
