Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Inhabit clear protected reefs with sponge and algal habitats. Often in large sponges during the day (Ref. 48637). Usually over sand and mud bottoms to at least 170 m (Ref. 30573). Occasionally on reefs (Ref. 9680). Active at night, feeding among reefs (Ref. 48637). A nocturnal species (Ref. 9710) that presumably feeds on hard-shelled invertebrates (Ref. 9680, 48637).
