Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 23.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It has a maximum total length of 23 cm; and a carapace length of 4 to 7.6 cm (male) and 4 to 8 cm (female), 6 to 8 cm (ovigerous female) (Ref. 4). Occurs at a depth range from 49 to 314 m, mostly between 100 and 250 m, and it is found on soft substrates of sand, mud or clay (Ref. 4). It prefers salinities of 34 ppt (Ref. 112711). Phyllosomas grow into juvenile stage with feeding on jellyfish under laboratory conditions. It is suggested that for genus Ibacus, jellyfish may be a viable diet for phyllosomas (Ref. 112087). Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833).
