Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found in intertidal areas (Ref. 31184), like wave-battered rocky shores of coastal waters (Ref. 5298). They prefer crevices and troughs in steep walls. Breathe air when out of water under rocks or seaweeds (Ref. 31184). Very inactive except during spawning. They feed on mussels, other benthic invertebrates and algae (Ref. 5981). Only known nocturnally active combtooth blenny (Ref. 42918). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

Oviparous, distinct pairing (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00724 (0.00322 - 0.01632), b=3.00 (2.80 - 3.20), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.5   ±0.0 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
