Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
"Shallow water" under rocks and crevices on rocky bottoms, according to Holthuis (1991), although it has been recorded as deep as 143 m. This species is nocturnal. Although longevity and age at maturity are not known for this species, inference from similar species (e.g., the Caribbean Spiny Lobster Panulirus argus) suggests a longevity of up to 20 years and sexual maturity at around four years.

Changes in recruitment levels for this species are related to Pacific sea levels four years earlier (Polovina and Mitchum 1992).
