Liza ordensis from northern Austalia is most probably a different species on the basis of molecular investigations after Durand et al. (2012: Ref. 90274). The correspondng species page will be created when a taxonomic paper will state formally on the case.

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit coastal waters, estuaries; sometimes ascending rivers into fresh water (Ref. 9812). They prefer slow moving waters or still lagoons (Ref. 9812). Often found in turbid water, over muddy substrates, and with well-substantiated aquatic vegetation (Ref. 9812). They feed on microalgae, detritus, terrestrial plant material, and aquatic insects (Ref. 9812). Perhaps catadromous (Ref. 9812). Oviparous, eggs are pelagic and non-adhesive (Ref. 205).
