Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Indo-West Pacific: India east to Sagami Bay, Japan and China. A new record was reported from southern Indonesia (Ref. 5978).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on rocky cliffs in deep water (Ref. 9710). Also inhabits muddy substrates in protected bays where wave action has no influence (Ref. 48636). Solitary (Ref 90102).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Sexual pattern seem to be intermediate between simultaneous and sequential hermaphroditism: individuals, at least under conditions of captivity, have the capacity to change sex in either direction, from functional male to functional female, or vice versa (Ref. 31569).
