Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 10.8 - 14.1, mean 12.3 °C (based on 41 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00126 (0.00052 - 0.00302), b=2.91 (2.70 - 3.12), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.7 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
