Africa: described from the Luvua drainage (upper Congo River basin) in Democratic Republic of the Congo, which is the actual type locality, in stead of the Lukuga as stated in original description (Ref. 78218). Also reported from the Rusizi (Ref. 87863) and the middle Congo basin (Ref. 78218, 106245) including Wagenia Falls (Ref. 106245) in DRC, the Kwango (middle Congo River basin) in Angola (Ref. 11970) and affluents of Lake Tanganyika (Ref. 78218) in DRC and Tanzania. Furthermore collected in the upper Lualaba and Sankuru basin (Ref. 12818). According to Ref. 78218 only the types can with certainty be identified as this species, awaiting revision.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00259 - 0.01467), b=3.09 (2.88 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
