Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Intertidal, actively shuttling back and forth between rock pools and air (skipper) (Ref. 31184). Live in moist shaded pockets of pitted limestone in the spray zone, leaping from hole to hole when disturbed (Ref. 1602). Breathe air when out of water (Ref. 31184). 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).
