Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBiology 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]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat This species is either supralittoral or can be found in the intertidal zone but does not live there naturally.
