IUCN Red List Category Not Evaluated
Other Parameters The type locality where some specimens of Isbrueckerichthys calvus were collected was described in the original description as a small creek of rural region, flowing through a landscape of mixed open field, riparian vegetation and forest, sometimes with a very degraded margin. Grass or other vegetation is usually present on the margins. The stretch sampled is narrow (about 2–4 m wide) and shallow (about 0.2–0.5 m deep). The stream bottom was rocky, with small to medium-sized rocks, loose stones and gravel; and some small pools along the stream with sand and mud on the bottom. The water was clear to turbid and moderate to fast flowing. The fishes were usually found along the bottom among rocks and stones, just under small waterfalls.
