This is a hypoplanktonic species found in polyhaline environments; particularly found on shell gravel or coarse shell sand bottoms, among seaweeds, large shells and debris. This species shelters in shells or vegetation during daytime and is found in pelagic habitats during night time (Ref. 85342). Members of the order Mysida are gonochoric. Mating behavior: Male inserts the penis into the marsupium and releases sperm; eggs are then released from the oviducts into the marsupium where fertilization occurs. Life cycle: Eggs are brooded in the marsupium and later hatch into miniature adults, no postlarva (Ref. 833).
