Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits shallow waters (Ref. 3113), at depths of 0 to 20 m, in kelp holdfasts of Macrocystis sp. and Durvillaea antarctica (Ref. 87801). It feeds on the tissue of kelp holdfasts (Ref. 87801). Members of the order Isopoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Mating usually occurs before and sometimes during the parturial molt. Sperm transfer is indirect. Life cycle: Eggs are brooded in the marsupium, which later hatch into manca postlarva before developing into adults (Ref. 833).
