grasp hydranths of Clava multicornis (Hydractiniidae) as larvae and feed on their stolons (ref: TomaWilh1997)
loose larval extremities at 5th moult and change feeding from small hydroids to sea anemones (ref: TomaWilh1997)
number of juvenile moults varies between 6 and 8 (ref: TomaWilh1997)
juvenile also increase in length during intermoult; First increase can be due to uptake of water (ref: TomaWilh1997)
males carry the eggs on their ovigers till protonymphon larvae hatch (ref: TomaWilh1997)
prefers Metridium senile as food above Actinia equina and Tealia felina in British waters (ref: TomaWilh1997)
repeated mating as adults without further moults (ref: TomaWilh1997)
can starve for 18 months (ref: TomaWilh1997)
females deposit all their eggs in a single clutch on the male (ref: JarvKing1972)
