Mathaeus Sea Urchin is a frequent inhabitant of the reef. He is to be found on the reef roof and at the upper reef slopes. During the day they hide themselves in holes (scraped by their own) in the coral rocks, before they come out at night to food search. The contrast between the reddish-brown pricks and the white basal ring is salient.
