Maximum carapace length: 4.0 cm (male); 5.4 cm (female) (Ref. 8). Adults spawn offshore and postlarvae enter shallow estuarine waters, settling on algal and seagrass beds. Juveniles are reported to feed on plant material (Ref. 106887). 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).
