The species prefers cold climate waters. They live in statoblastic colonies. The habitat is either lotic or lentic, including man-made water bodies such as gravel pits.

Populations in Europe are genetically relatively homogeneous, perhaps reflecting postglacial colonization representing a single lineage. In contrasts, North American populations are highly diverse. There is some evidence of two different major lineages, perhaps representing cryptic species or subspecies, with hybridization that have boosted genetic diversity.
