Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults are found in tide pools and rocky shore areas. Are primarily herbivorous (Ref. 9032). Selectively feed on the green algae Ulva, Enteromorpha, as juveniles and favor red algae Gelidium as adults (Ref. 94105). 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).
