  • Living mainly in still water such as lakes and ponds.

  • occurring occasionally in or near rivers : from "tyche" - chance ("Tyche" was the Greek goddess of chance), and "potamos" - river.

    I'd have to disagree respectfully with mollusque's definition; etymologically speaking, lakes and ponds don't enter into it.
