Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in pairs and live symbiotically with Alpheus randalli. The pair hover above the burrow's entrance on dark sandy bottoms. Inhabits deep coastal slopes and sand flats, usually in depth over 10 meters (Ref. 48637). Also found in sand-rubble bottoms (Ref 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00266 - 0.01303), b=3.12 (2.93 - 3.31), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
