Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 20.6 - 28.9, mean 25.9 °C (based on 82 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01738 (0.00668 - 0.04524), b=3.01 (2.78 - 3.24), 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
