Inhabits shallow waters (Ref. 3113). Burrows in a variety of intertidal and shallow subtidal substrates, such as marsh banks (peat, mud or clay), sponges, wood, friable rocks (sandstone, mudstone and claystone), concrete and styrofoam floats (Ref. 8055). Can also be found on pier piles (Ref. 81176). Members of the order Isopoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Mating usually occurs before and sometimes during the parturial molt. Sperm transfer is indirect. Life cycle: Eggs are brooded in the marsupium, which later hatch into manca postlarva before developing into adults (Ref. 833).
