Biology

Adults occur on filamentous algae-covered rocky terraces; occasionally in brackish water (Ref. 5981). Predominantly active during sunlight; otherwise found in piddock holes or barnacle shells (Ref. 5981). They feed on benthic meiofauna, especially harpacticoids; also algae (Ref. 5981). 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).
