Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It is found on pneumatophores and roots of Avicennia marina (Ref. 107904). Active during low tide, but many are observed at high tide moving to mangrove roots above water level. Also lives among roots of Rhizophora mucronata. Feeds on mainly on macroalgae, a bit of mangrove leaves and mud; animal items were rare but may be an opportunistic feeder to a certain degree (Ref. 108401). 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).
