It is found on exposed rocks, and is epizoic on sponges, bryozoans, hydrocorals, or sea pens at depths of 20 to 594 m (Ref. 87801). Members of the class Crinoidea are gonochoric. During spawning, the pinnule walls rupture and the eggs and sperms are shed into the seawater. Life cycle: Embryos elongate into free-swimming larvae (doliolaria) which later sink to the bottom where they metamorphose into stalked sessile crinoid (Ref. 833).
