Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Moderately common in rocky areas and among rubble, often in crevices and shallow caves. Usually lies at rest on the substrate (Ref. 9626). Feeds primarily on small crustaceans, particularly copepods, shrimps and shrimp larvae, crabs and crab larvae as well as polychaetes (Ref. 7510).
