Lateral trunk ridge continuous with inferior tail ridge; superior trunk and tail ridges extending forward over 4 trunk rings.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabits small caves in sublittoral rocky reefs. Reported from tide pools to depths of at least 25 m offshore, but mostly seen in shallow depths (Ref. 48635). An active cleaner that shares crevices with shrimps, large mud crabs and sometimes moray eels (Ref. 48635). Solitary or in pairs near sponges and Diadema sea urchins (Ref 90102). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205). The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205). Spawns from the end of May to September.

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturità | Riproduzione | Deposizione | Uova | Fecundity | Larve

Monogamous mating is observed as both obligate and genetic (Ref. 52884). Male carries the eggs in a brood pouch (Ref. 205).
