Stream temperature varied from 24.8 °C to 26.7 °C, pH from 5.2 to 6.5, conductivity from 8.8 to 18.6 µS/cm, and dissolved oxygen from 1.07 to 6.68 mg/l. Also collected together with this species are at least 40 species, including other undescribed species, from different taxonomic groups (Ref. 92919).
