Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm

Lives among branches of live and dead corals of sheltered shallow reefs (Ref. 2334). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
