Most cirolanids are free-living carnivores or scavengers (Ref. 108479). The genus Eurydice is a voracious carnivore preying on a variety of invertebrates (Ref. 108482). Members of the order Isopoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Mating usually occurs before and sometimes during the parturial molt. Sperm transfer is indirect. Life cycle: Eggs are brooded in the marsupium, which later hatch into manca postlarva before developing into adults (Ref. 833).
