Usually recorded from swift flowing streams, often described as cascades or cascade zone, above or below waterfalls, with solid rock, boulder and gravel substrate. A few sites consisted of mud and sand substrates and one was from a mangrove only 50 m from the shoreline. Gut content of one specimen from Palau contained insect remains and a few nematodes (Ref. 84480).
