Males have greater development of the primary ocular cirrus. Nesting males were observed January to March and June to September. Males guarded large egg masses attached to the ceiling and sidesof the inner refuge. Eggs were 1 to 1.3 mm in diameter with one large yellow-orange oil droplet. Larvae hatched at a total length (=notochord length) of 5 mm.
