Remarks Cryptobenthic, epibenthic . Collected on drop-offs, either sloping or vertical with caves. Apparently tends to congregate in loose schools close to the shelter of caves and sea fans, to which they retreat when approached, and seem to be most abundant at about 20 meter depth range. Often form mixed schools with Trimma tevegae (Ref. 55345).
