Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Known from pelagic depths between 100 to 200 m (Ref. 92299). Occurs on muddy and sandy bottoms on the shelf and upper slope. Buries in the mud during the day and emerges at night (Ref. 80202). Feeds on benthic invertebrates living on soft bottom substrates like polychaetes, bivalves, gastropods and echinoderms (Ref. 106588). 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).
