Western Central Pacific: Philippines to New Caledonia, north to Yaeyama Islands, south to the Great Barrier Reef; throughout Micronesia.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits muddy bottoms of inshore bays and lagoons from about 3 to at least 20 m and uses a vertical, tube-like burrow of an unidentified invertebrate for refuge (Ref. 1602). Occurs in coastal and inner reefs on sand and rubble flats to about 20 meters depth (Ref. 48637). Feeds by sifting mouthfuls of sand to capture small invertebrates and organic matter (Ref. 1602).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00245 - 0.01233), b=3.25 (3.06 - 3.44), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.24 se; Based on food items.
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):   Very high.
