Ecological interactions

Native status

Non-native (domestic non-native Species in Iwate Prefecture: Matsuzawa and Senou 2008). Native Japanese populations of the species have been widely affected by introgression due to human introductions except for the population of north Lake Biwa ( Mabuchi et al. 2005, Mabuchi et al. 2006, Mabuchi et al. 2008, Mabuchi et al. 2010), so therefore we regarded the populations of the region as non-native species.


Endemic to Lake Biwa, Japan.


This species was captured an irrigation pond with dense aquatic plants.
