Maximum depth from Ref. 100849. Inhabits mesopelagic and bathypelagic zones (Ref. 97594). Characteristic elongated incisor process of the mandibles may indicate feeding by piercing and sucking body fluids of some pelagic animals (Ref. 100849). 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).
