Reproduction
This species spawns on rocky patches of the sea floor once per year in mid winter. Females will lay eggs about three dozen eggs and guard the brood until they are capable of hunting for themselves.
The parvil has a symbiotic relationship with the golus, a poisonous marine snail. The parvil’s brood scrapes are also the nesting sites of the golus. By virtue of their relationship, the parvil is one of the few creatures immune to the toxic gel secreted by the golus.
