Etymology The epithet sinaloae is in honor of El Colegio de Sinaloa. [details]

Habitat Aracia sinaloae was found in temperatures from 25.8 to 30.8°C and salinity 37–41‰, associated with settling panels for the invasive serpulid polychaete F. miamiensis and attached to R. mangle roots. Among mangrove roots, F. miamiensis forms small aggregates where A. sinaloae coexists with the sabellid worms Megalomma coloratum (Chamberlin) and Parasabella sp. [details]

Reproduction Aracia sinaloae is a simultaneous hermaphrodite which when sexually mature has sperm and oocytes, and broods embryos in cocoons attached to the dorsal-most radiolar pair. [details]

Type locality Shrimp farm in Urías Estuary, Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Gulf of California, México, 23.1537°, -106.3071°. [details]
