Northeast Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea.
This is a shallow water species found among Ulva and Posidonia. In northern waters it is found among weeds, and in pools with hard bottoms or under overhanging rocks without mud. The animal is observed to migrate to the surface when darkness sets during the breeding season (Ref. 85342). Members of the order Mysida are gonochoric. Mating behavior: Male inserts the penis into the marsupium and releases sperm; eggs are then released from the oviducts into the marsupium where fertilization occurs. Life cycle: Eggs are brooded in the marsupium and later hatch into miniature adults, no postlarva (Ref. 833).
