Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults are found in shallow water and tidal pools (Ref. 13227). They feed on gastropods (Ref. 94105). Eggs are hemispherical and covered with numerous sticky threads that anchor them in the algae on the nesting sites (Ref. 240). Larvae are planktonic which occur primarily in shallow, nearshore waters (Ref. 94114).
