This species is found in marine, fresh and brackish waters particularly at littoral zones with sandy bottoms. They are known to be adaptive to varying degrees of salinity and display diurnal vertical migrations (Ref. 85342). 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).
