Remarks Known from two small streams on the western slope of the Rakhine Yoma, draining to the Bay of Bengal. The type locality, Yan Khaw Chaung, was a small forest river reduced to a series of connecting pools with a combined width of 2 meters, and not more than 1 meter deep, with slow flowing or standing water. The water clear and colorless; the bed made up of pebbles, gravel and rocks. The stream is lined with shrub and forest, but no aquatic vegetation. The second locality, Kanamae Chaung with slight current and the stream reduced to a series of small pools (Ref. 52314).
