Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

This species is found in shallow water regions such as protected reef flats and reef crests. It is highly specialized and prefers fine-branched corals such as Acropora selago and small tabulate colonies of Acropora hyacinthus. Seldom occurs in other Acropora species, such as A. acuminata, A. samoensis, A. eurystoma and A. valida. Due to its black colouration it is sometimes difficult to detect within the dark interstices of narrow-branched Acropora colonies (Ref. 94082).
