Species' maximum length from the Belgian part of the North Sea (Ref. 7882). Associated with the macrobenthos, this species inhabit a wide range of sediment types but often in coarser sediment with mud content not exceeding 70% (Refs. 7882, 96352). This species lives close to the bottom and burrows in mud or sand (Refs. 7882, 85342). Found in areas influenced by estuarine outflows (Ref. 96507). Also found among Zostera seagrass (Ref. 85342). A microvore-carnivore-scavenger that feeds on organic detritus (Ref. 96352). Members of the order Mysida are gonochoric. Mating behavior: Male inserts the penis into the marsupium and releases sperm; eggs are then released from the oviducts into the marsupium where fertilization occurs. Life cycle: Eggs are brooded in the marsupium and later hatch into miniature adults, no postlarva (Ref. 833).
