Max length : 6.2 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 5723 ); common length : 4.1 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 12193 ); max. reported age: 2 years (Ref. 12193 )

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabit rocky pools of headwaters, creeks and small rivers, and rocky margins of medium-sized rivers and impoundments (Ref. 5723 ); also found in streams (Ref. 10294 ). Adults feed on midge, mayfly, and immature caddisfly, with copepods and other microcrustaceans (Ref. 10294 ). Eggs are found clustered on underside of stone and guarded by males (Ref. 7043 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00501 (0.00202 - 0.01242), b=3.14 (2.92 - 3.36), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tmax=2; Fec=17-69). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
