Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 5.9 - 16.7, mean 10.2 °C (based on 390 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.54 se; based on food items. Resilience Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
