Rem.: epi-mesopelagic. Known to occur at depths between 30 and 700 m (Matthews, 1972). Sargasso Sea: 0-1000 m (Deevey & Brooks, 1977, Station "S").
Timonin (1971, p.282) considers the trophic interrelations in the equatorial and tropical Indian Ocean, and divides the plankters into 6 trophic groups from the litterature and the results of studies of mouth-parts structure and intestine content. This species is a piercing and sucking carnivorous.
After Benedetti & al. (2018, p.1, Fig.2) this species belonging to the functional group 2 corresponding to small ambush feeding carnivorous.
