Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Juveniles about 1-2 cm SL are often observed in association with sea urchins and in beds of Posidonia oceanica. Adults found hidden under stones covered with red calcareous algae and empty shells of mussels near Posidonia and Cymodocea nodosa beds. Among Posidonia, the species is often sympatric with Opeatogenys gracilis (Ref. 28715).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 17.6 - 19.2, mean 18.7 (based on 109 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00242 - 0.01249), b=3.11 (2.91 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
