Description of life cycle and mating behavior Bi-directional sex change has been confirmed for this species (Ref. 103751). Sexual pattern seem to be intermediate between simultaneous and sequential hermaphroditism: individuals, at least under conditions of captivity, have the capacity to change sex in either direction, from functional male to functional female, or vice versa (Ref. 31569).
