Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in shallow areas of rivers with sandy, coarse sand or gravel substrate in which it buries itself when disturbed. Usually occur in big groups. Insectivore. Has been bred in captivity at an experimental level, but with a larval mortality of 100%.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00871 (0.00392 - 0.01936), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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) .
