Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It has carapce lengths of 5 to 12 cm (Ref.4). Found in depths between 45 and 200 m. Little is known about the substrate on which the animals live, except for one record from a sandy bottom (Ref. 4). In general, Scyallarides inhabits the intertidal zone; many prefer rocky substrates while others are on muddy or sandy bottoms (Ref. 106789). Scyllarids are mainly carnivorous scavengers preferring small benthic invertebrates (Ref. 106995).
