Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Akysis inermis has been found in various habitats from swift creek to riffles in streams and rapids in large rivers. All habitats had in common a stony (gravel to boulder) substrate and relatively swift current. In most of them the water was clear in the dry season (Ref. 37037).
