Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 10.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 7726)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Assumed maximum length from Ref. 822. Known from intertidal to deep waters, in large aggregations of thirty or more individual adults (Ref. 7726). Free-living (Ref. 3123). Generally for group, planktonic and minute detrital food items through either suspension or deposit feeding (Ref. 87872). Feeds on various sea anemones (Ref. 822), particularly frilled anemone (Ref. 7726). Sexes are separate but are seldom conspicuously different externally, simultaneous hermaphrodites yet self-fertilization is prevented due to various morphological, physiological, or behavioral mechanisms; generally, marine gastropods shed their eggs (Ref. 87872).
