Etymology: Entomacrodus: Greek, ento = inside + Greek, makros = big + Greek, odous = teeth (Ref. 45335).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; demersal. Tropical
Eastern Atlantic: off west Africa from Senegal to Guinea, Cape Verde, Ile de Roumé and Ile de Anno Bon. Reported from São Tomé Island (Ref. 34088).
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 5298)
Adults are found on rocky shores of coastal waters (Ref. 5298). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
