Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
; marino demersale; distribuzione batimetrica 5 - 80 m (Ref. 4696), usually 5 - 30 m (Ref. 27115). Subtropical; 15°C - 20°C (Ref. 27115); 45°N - 27°N, 19°W - 36°E

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 10.0 cm TL maschio/sesso non determinato; (Ref. 4696)
Spine dorsali (totale): 7; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 14; Spine anali 1; Raggi anali molli: 13. Distinguished by having the following characteristics: Reduced suckers (Ref. 92840).
Occurs in deeper inshore waters; over rocky substrates with algae and gorgonians (Ref. 4696). Abundant populations on coasts with steep bedrock. A shy species and difficult to collect due to long flight distances and hiding in deep clefts (Ref. 87880). Macrobenthos feeder on hard substrates ingest also shelled organisms like molluscs and echinoderms (Ref. 92840).
