Found on bay and nearshore (Ref. 111151). Estuarine to 5 m (Ref. 3113). Can also be found on pier fouling samples (Ref. 81176). Members of the family Sphaeromatidae are omnivores in general (Ref. 108484). 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).
