Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It has lengths of 18 cm, maximum total body length; between 4.5 and 8 cm, carapace length (Ref. 4). It is found in shallow water on reefs, usually on the exposed side, often in surge channels. They hide in crevices and marine caves in the day time, often attached to the ceilings of the caves (Ref. 4). In general, scyllarids are mainly carnivorous scavengers preferring small benthic invertebrates (Ref. 106995). Its congener Parribacus antarcticus appears to be an invertebrate generalist while other scyllarids are observed to become specialized for feeding on bivalves (Ref. 106996). Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833).
