Collected from the stretches of the rio Água Preta and rio Panelão at altitudes ranging from 162-184 m above sea level, with moderate to rapid water current, running over rock, pebbles and sand bottoms, 0.3-1.5 m deep, with rapids, pools, and meanders. Stomach contents of two specimens consisted of allochthonous and autochthonous items which included fragments of vascular plants, organic debris, insect larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae and other unidentified orders), and unidentified arthropods (Ref. 116766).
