Morphology | Morphometrics
Obligate sponge dwellers. Live deep within canals of the sponges, near the openings to the incurrent canals. Sponges provide species with protection from predators and an available food source in many invertebrates. Eggs found within sponge or small plankton brought through incurrent pores (Ref. 92840).

Estimates based on models
Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969
): 27.1 - 28.2, mean 27.8 °C (based on 300 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5312 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00421 - 0.01885), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), 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
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
