Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Primarily a benthic species living close to the bottom; among Cymodocea and Zostera seagrass; also in brackish water, mouths of rivers and lagoons (Ref. 85342). Feeding based on genus data (Ref. 96422). 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).
