It inhabits self-constructed tubes of fine sediment, on mud, algae or solid substrates (Ref. 96468). Members of the order Tanaidacea are gonochoric and exhibits sexual dimorphism. Mating usually occurs in the female's tube; fertilization occurs in the marsupium. Life cycle: Eggs develop into manca larvae and later grow into reproductive females. After producing 1 or 2 broods, they molt into reproductive males (Ref. 833).
