Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A very common shore species that burrows in level-bottom habitats (Ref. 92). Prefers sandy-muddy bottoms (Ref. 87055). May deposit feed as well (Ref. 105093). Some members of the order Stomatopoda pair for life and some come together only to mate. Males produce sperm ducts rather than spermatophores; females can brood a maximum of 50,000 eggs. Life cycle: Eggs hatch to a planktonic zoea which lasts for 3 months (Ref. 833).
