BiologyFound in a variety of streams from river mainstreams to small brooks. Seems to avoid mountain streams with steep gradient. Seems to prefer shallow riffles over small pebbles above which its marmorated color pattern makes it inconspicuous from the surface. Also collected on a muddy to sandy substrate with a few stones and numerous gastropod shells in depths ranging from 0.05 to 0.5 m.
