A global citizen science platform
to discover, share and identify wildlife
Its scientific name comes from the Greek: for (next to) + blennios (mucus) + pilicornis (hair horns). Adults prefer rocky shores, often on steep walls of sites exposed to waves. They are oviparous, the eggs are attached to the interior of the nest through a filamentous adhesive pad, which after hatching the larvae are planktonic in shallow water. The yellow livery indicates that it is a male in heat.
