Assumed maximum length from Ref. 822. Found from the intertidal to a depth of 15 m. Feeds on campanularid hydroids (Ref. 866); and on the hydroid, Lytocarpus (Ref. 822). Members of the order Nudibranchia are simultaneous hermaphrodites. Mating behavior: Both individuals darts their penis toward each other to induce one to act as a male and the other as the female. The victorious one to penetrate the body wall is the dominant male. Life cycle: Eggs are deposited on a substratum where they develop and hatch into (planktonic) vestigial veliger larval stage and further grow as adults (Ref. 833).
