Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cmCommon length : 1.2 cm H male/unsexed; (Ref. 338)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It has a height of 0.8 to 1.2 cm (Ref. 338). Identified as a possible Lessepsian migrant, present at least in Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean (Ref. 85347). Habitat: Occurs in reef areas with a depth of 1 to 3 m where conditions of low light intensity prevail. Diet: diatoms Navicula, Nitzschia and Thalassiosira, and dinoflagellates Protoperidinium and Triceratium. Life span: 60 days (Ref. 338). Reproduction: Within 12 hours of release, tadpole-like larvae attach to surfaces by three anterior suckers. The tadpoles then develop and metamorphose into juvenile filter feeders within 24 hours (Ref. 338).
