This is sometimes known as a fouling species (Ref. 81749). Attached on gorgonians, spines of sea urchins and stalked barnacles surfaces (Ref. 85157). Members of the superorder Thoracica are mostly hermaphroditic. Broadcast spawners, fertilization occurs in the mantle cavity. Life cycle: Eggs hatch into planktonic nauplii and leave the mantle cavity. Afterwards, they undergo six naupliar instars succeded by nonfeeding cypris larva (settling stage) which later metamorphose into adults (Ref. 833).
