Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits a lagoon, in clump of Monitpora verrucosa, under rubble and overhangs, and found along with alpheids (Ref. 101028). Also occurs in a reef flat at a depth of 9 m (Ref. 100838). Semicryptic with arms extended in a multidirectional posture, beneath ledges and crevices (Ref. 100368). Associated with an assemblage of shrimps, a lobster, polychaete, and snail (Refs. 100838, 100851,102275). Suspension feeder (Ref. 68823). Members of the class Crinoidea are gonochoric. During spawning, the pinnule walls rupture and the eggs and sperms are shed into the seawater. Life cycle: Embryos elongate into free-swimming larvae (doliolaria) which later sink to the bottom where they metamorphose into stalked sessile crinoid (Ref. 833).
