Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum carapace length: 4.1 cm (male); 4.8 cm (female) (Ref. 8). Maximum depth from Ref. 97531. Occurs at depths from 3 to 700 m, common at depths from 10 to 75 m (Ref. 434), inhabits bottom mud or sandy mud, and sandy patches among rocks in marine environment. Juveniles found in estuarine environment (Refs. 8, 106886). Also inhabits lagoons (Ref. 417). In general, the majority of penaeids are omnivorous or detritus feeders (Ref. 105082).
