BiologyAdults are usually found among large brown algae (Carpophyllum and Cystophora). They feed on weed dwelling crustaceans and small fish (Ref. 9003). 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).
