Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Oviparous. Distinct pairing with embrace. Young may tend to follow large objects, such as their mother (Ref. 205 ). Eggs are oblong capsules with stiff pointed horns at the corners deposited in sandy or muddy flats (Ref. 205 ). Egg capsules are 6.0 cm long and 3.4 cm wide (Ref. 41249 ). Frequently taken in commercial bottom hauls but not much utilized because of its small size (Ref. 5159 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, paired eggs are laid. Embryos feed solely on yolk (Ref. 50449 ). Distinct pairing with embrace. Young may tend to follow large objects, such as their mother (Ref. 205 ). Eggs have horn-like projections on the shell (Ref. 205 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 1.6 - 3.9, mean 3 (based on 42 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00490 (0.00244 - 0.00981), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.9   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec assumed to be <100). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate to high vulnerability (55 of 100) . Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Medium .
