Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Deep-sea species living on muddy substrates of the outer shelf and continental slope (Ref. 106817). Found on sublittoral areas to a depth of 1300 meters, on rocky coral banks, with sponges, muddy sand, shells, and pebbles (Ref. 2708). Opportunistic predator but appears to be able to deposit feed and scavenge. Preyed upon by many epibenthic crabs and fishes (Ref. 106817). 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).
