Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm

Adults are found in shallow lagoon reefs, on algal covered rocks and rubble (Ref. 9710). 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).
