Eastern Atlantic: Lofotens, Norway, to Gibraltar. Also known from the Mediterranean Sea. Eastern Central Atlantic: Madeira Island (Ref. 74541).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthic and free swimming (Ref. 92840). This occasionally territorial species occurs in coastal waters, over shell, sand, or mud bottoms; males bottom-living during breeding season. Feed on zooplankton (Ref. 5204). Spawning takes place when 1 year old. Adults die afterwards. Eggs are laid in the empty tube-worms and are guarded by the male (Ref. 35388). Eggs are pear-shaped (Ref. 4696).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00468 (0.00202 - 0.01083), b=3.27 (3.07 - 3.47), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tm=1; tmax=1; Fec=340).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100) .
