BiologyAdults are usually found in surge channels or on vertical encrusted rock walls, in tidal pools on reef crests (Ref. 27223, 90102) and areas with some wave action and abundant algal growth (Ref. 90102). 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).
