Specimens were collected from the lower intertidal zone on a narrow reef flat exposed to strong wave energy and were found living in small water-filled crevices in the reef pavement. Observed to be fairly abundant on the reef flat where it was collected, with an estimated five to 10 individuals per m2 in the lower intertidal zone ( Ref. 116852).
