Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky and weedy areas. Synchronously hermaphroditic. Feeds on caridean shrimp and small fish (Ref. 5521).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Pelagic spawner. This species exhibits a combination of simultaneous and sequential hermaphroditism. Smaller individuals within a social group are simultaneous hermaphrodites, while the largest often lose female function and reproduce exclusively as a male (Ref. 103751).
