Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults are found predominantly in tide pools and upper subtidal areas. Are solitary. They feed mainly on amphipods, isopods, polychaetes, and small gastropods. Males may defend small breeding territories during the breeding season (Ref 13227). 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).

Life cycle and mating behavior Madurez | Reproducción | Puesta | Huevos | Fecundidad | Larva

Eggs are laid in empty barnacle shells found in rocky areas. The nest is guarded by the male while the eggs are covered with water. Juveniles are found in the intertidal region between August and December (Ref. 13227).
