The long setae rarely have tiny lateral setules as occur in some similar species. Lateral processes well separated. Neck posterior widest, tapering toward anterior.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Slope to basin (Ref. 19). Members of the class Pycnogonida are gonochoric and sexually dimorphic. During copulation, male usually suspends itself beneath the female. Fertilization occurs as the eggs leave the female's ovigers. Males brood the egg masses until they hatch. Life cycle: Eggs hatch into protonymphon larva then to adults (Ref. 833).
