Adults occur solitary (Ref. 90102) usually over sandy areas of reef flats and shallow lagoons. Small juveniles were found below the upside-down jelly Cassiopea that moves over sandy substrates providing safe travel (Ref. 48636). Eggs are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Females nest in empty mollusk shells (Ref. 1602). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
