Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Presumed to cause Irukandji syndrome. Several stings were observed onshore after cyclones (Ref. 61059). Specimens have been caught nearshore during onshore winds but observed to be more common offshore. Often occurs in a band, about 9 m deep. Most often caught during the penultimate hour before slack tide, with higher abundance on a falling tide than on a rising tide (Ref. 61059).
