Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults occur in tide pools and close to edge of rocky shores at low tide. Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
