Depth range Intertidal.  [details]

Ecology The species lives in coralline algal turf on rocky intertidal shores, being more common in low-shore areas than in mid-shore areas.  [details]

Etymology Named for the type locality, Bondi Beach, NSW, Australia.  [details]

Reproduction Kelaher & Rouse (2003) did not find evidence of sexual reproduction in spite of extensive sampling, but observed numerous worms with regenerating heads and tails, indicating the importance of asexual reproduction in the species.  [details]
