Archichauliodes larvae are common in hard-bottom streams in bush covered and farmland areas.
They are predators, using their large serrated mandibles to capture other stream invertebrates.
- Hard bottom: 7
- Soft bottom: 7.3
The tolerance values (ranging from 0 to 10) give an indication of which are the sensitive taxa (values of 8 or more) and which are the tolerant taxa (values of 3 or less). For more information see: Indicator species
Archichauliodes are common in streams with moderate to good water quality. They have tolerance values of 7 (hard bottom sites) and 7.3 (soft bottom sites).
