Africa: lower Congo River basin in Democratic Republic of the Congo (Ref. 26192). Also reported from Stanley-Pool (Ref. 2801). Other reports (Cameroon, Kwango and Kasai rivers in Angola, Aruwimi, middle Congo River and Kasai in Congo DR) are questionable and need confirmation. Mostly in rapid water habitats, e.g. cataracts of Yelala and Kinsuka.

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00708 (0.00317 - 0.01581), b=3.06 (2.89 - 3.23), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 4.5 - 14 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (51 of 100) .
