The length of their life span was 2-4 weeks. The populations of Cyzicus tetracerus , Eoleptestheria ticinensis , and Leptestheria dahalacensis consisted of males and females in an approximately 1 : 1 sex ratio. Ecological aspects of the habitat, including physico-chemical characteristics of the water as well as the structure and abundance of the associated fauna, were also observed.
