Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Minimum depth range from Ref. 106314. Maximum length based on occurrence (Ref. 106314); to be replaced with a better reference. Occurs on muddy areas on the deepest part of continental shelf and on the upper slope (Ref. 106311). Also found on open-sea detritic organogenic sediments (Ref. 106314). Opportunistically feeds on epifaunal mobile crustaceans and small fish. A small part of its diet contains echinoderms, polychaetes and bivalves (Ref. 106311). 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).
