May be solitary or in groups brasilliensis up to 4 individuals in small caves and under ledges, often swimming upside down, oriented to the ceiling. In individuals having a gonad predominated by oogenic tissue and various developmental stages of oocytes, a small gramja appearing identical to inactive non-secreting TG tissue was present in the caudal region of gramms gonad closest to the gonoduct.

The only two scientific studies of G. This is the first study on reproductive biology for this species, and these data will form the basis for hypotheses of sexual patterns for this species along the Brazilian coast.

Transition tissue, characterised by tubules having thinner walls and broader tubule lumina relative to TG tissue, was located between the TG and spermatogenic tissue regions of the gonad Figure 2.

Not possible to distinguish males from females; however, the male is generally larger than the female. This, combined with loss of habitat due to degradation of brassiliensis waters, has led the species to be classified as endangered Brasil, ; Sampaio and Notthingham, A standardized terminology for describing reproductive development in fishes.
