Adults occur in shallow, sheltered waters, on hard corals; found on the upper part of coral reefs, usually along the reef margin in depths of about 1 m, often on corals covered by low algae. Also found in bays or sheltered lagoons (Ref.
). Eggs are hemispherical and covered with numerous sticky threads that anchor them in the algae on the nesting sites (Ref.
). Larvae are planktonic which occur primarily in shallow, nearshore waters (Ref.
