Biology According to Crabill (pers.comm. quoted by Roth & Brown, 1976) this is found in protective cocoon-like structure on or in twigs floating or awash on beaches. It occurs throughout the larger landmasses and islands of the tropics and this can possibly be explained by tolerance of seawater. [details]
