Maximum depth from Ref. 106053. Occurs at depths from 10 to 1000 m, common at depths of 80 to 350 m (Ref. 435). Deep-water species, recorded down to 1212 m. Found in the upper and middle slope. Prefers intermixed bathyal mud and emerging rocky substrates. Reported to be among cold-water coral community, specifically on coral mounds and coral habitats on muddy bottoms. Carries a sponge on its back with its fifth pereiopods. Predator of benthic decapods (Ref. 96584) and an active scavenger (Refs. 96584, 106053). Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric.
