Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 2.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 822)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Assumed maximum length from Ref. 822. This species is found on rocky shores particularly in bathyal areas of gulfs and estuaries. They feed on planktonic and minute detrital food items through suspension or deposit feeding (Ref. 87872). It was observed to feed on the bryozoans Alcyonidium, Electra, and Frustrella (Ref. 822). Sexes are separate but are seldom conspicuously different externally, simultaneous hermaphrodites yet self-fertilization is prevented due to various morphological, physiological, or behavioral mechanisms; generally, marine gastropods shed their eggs (Ref. 87872).
