From editor or global species database
Biology Unique to an anchihaline cave pool, Bermuda. Authors: "Motility.-The animals swim beautifully in the water column, describing loops and turns. Less frequently, they glide over the surface and if provoked make an escape reaction or quick turn by undulation of the body and fast curling up of the palps in a narrow spiral. When swimming, they are capable of bending the prostomium and body as well as waving, bending and curling the long palps. The pygidial lobes are flapped between positions flat along the body to an almost right angle to the dorsal surface, thereby using the densely ciliated lobes as helms. The forward drift seems to be created mainly by the ventral ciliation, possibly with additional force from the cilia on palps and pygidial lobes" "Foraging could happen when gliding over or through the substrate as well as when swimming through and above the sediment collecting particles in suspension." [details]
