Habitat and Ecology: Lives in cold-water brooks near springs. It is a non-parasitic lamprey as adult does not feed. It requires a gravel substrate. The larvae remain hidden in the gravel for 3-5 years then the adult emerges and spawns over a one-month period in summer. It is important to conduct surveys at times when the adults have emerged in the summer.
Systems: Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Water extraction, pollution and drought.
