Depth range based on locality (Ref. 3113); to be replaced with a better reference. Inhabits hydrothermal sulphide deposits, sulphide rubble and volcanic rocks, close to active hydrothermal chimneys (Ref. 7379). 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).
