Biology/Natural History: This bathypelagic species lives very deep in midwater. Its exoskeleton is so soft that it is often damaged on capture. Note that it has unusually large eggs for an Oplophorid shrimp. It is one of the most common deepliving Oplophorid shrimp off British Columbia. It is not a vertical migrator.
