Depth range based on type locality; to be replaced with a better reference. Recorded in depths of 457 to 3150 m on the Kerguelen Plateau and only common between 747 and 2322 m (Ref. 89091). Members of the class Ostracoda are gonochoric. Sperm transfer is direct. During copulation, male clasps the female dorsally and posteriorly and later on injects its penis between the valves of the female. Eggs may either be attached to a substratum or brooded, where they grow and hatch as nauplii (Ref. 833).
