Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found solitary in abandoned tubes (Ref. 90102 ). Inhabit clear lagoon and seaward reefs with mixed corals and algae-covered rocks. 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 ).
