While this species is restricted to spring-fed streams, recent research has shown it sometimes inhabits eurythermal sites away from spring outflows in the Devils River (Val Verde County, Texas) (Kollaus and Bonner, 2012), which is not in keeping with the definition of a spring-associated species.
Analysis of zooplankton communities of 16 European lakes from latitudes between 60[degrees]N and 44[degrees]N revealed the presence of 20-25 species, with 2-5 rotifers and 1-3 copepods being dominant; both cold-water species and perennial, eurythermal species contributed to the zooplankton community (Dokulil and Herzig, 2009).
