Occurs in areas of mixed sand and rocky substratum; juveniles found in tide pools, but may occur in deeper waters. Stomach and gut contents have gastropods (mainly Strombus maculatus), pelecypods (with mytilid and Lima), ophiuroids (Ophiocoma), hermit crabs (Pagurus pascuensis), crabs (with Trapezia), and echinoids; with mollusks as the major prey items (Ref. 33411).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00475 - 0.02106), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.5 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Moderate vulnerability (42 of 100) .
