Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found in various reef habitats to about 15 m depth. Usually seen resting on corals (Ref. 48636 ) or on rocks (Ref. 90102 ). 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 ).
