Depth based from syntype (Ref. 1134); to be replaced with a better reference. Benthic, marine; on hard, wide-spreading, branched, filamentous algae, or sandy bottoms (Ref. 1134). Known from depths of 23 to 150 m (Ref. 1751), and from 0 to 200 m (Ref. 3435). Members of the class Ascidiacea are hermaphroditic; both cross- and self-fertilization is typical. Life cycle: Eggs develop into lecithotrophic larva before metamorphosing into benthic adults (Ref. 833).
