Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 18.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 822); common length : 4.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 822)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Assumed maximum and common length from Ref. 822. Feeds on crustaceans, prosobranchs, tunicates, sponges and bryozoans. Predator: polycerid nudibranch and the sea tiger (Ref. 844). 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).
