Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum carapace length: 3.6 cm (male); 5.5 cm (female). Inhabits bottom mud and mud with sand or shells. Adults live in marine environments. Juveniles usually estuarine and marine, sometimes hypersaline (Ref. 8). Adults also found in an estuary (Ref. 67428). Burrows. Exhibits diurnal activity (Ref. 105090). In general, the majority of penaeids are omnivorous or detritus feeders (Ref. 105082), although this species shows preference for animal protein (Ref. 106970). 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).
