Very interesting Ian, it

Very interesting Ian, it would fit the habitat descriptions for the genus, there is no mention of any of the 4 inhabiting still water. They're all river species with "fast rivers and streams" and "stoney rivers and streams" specified but no ponds or lakes mentioned.

Thanks for this.

Cathal.
