Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Occurs both as solitary individuals and in schools together with K. elegans and K. vaigiensis and are found close to the surface (< 25 m) on rocky shores, the open ocean and reefs on isolated islands (Ref. 95491). Also swim rapidly in small, somewhat polarized groups or schools in open water over deep reefs, along walls and drop-offs (Ref. 5227) or usually seen near floating logs far out to sea (Ref. 11482). This species differs from its congeners in having an omnivorous diet that includes zooplankton (Ref. 95491). Not common.
