Description Found offshore in warm waters. Juveniles pelagic in coastal and offshore waters down to at least 30 m, but adults possibly demersal in deep water (Ref. 9563). Occurs in association with floating Portuguese man-of-war, @Physalia@, feeding on its tentacles and gonads and may drift with it into shore waters with proper wind conditions (Ref. 4777). Probably also feeds on other soft-bodied jellyfish as well as on zooplankton (Ref.4777). [details]
