From editor or global species database
Alien species The species could act as the vector of potential pathogens and harmful symbionts, and is a potential alien species itself, due to bait trade. [details]

Depth range Intertidal to shallow subtidal. [details]

Diet Feeds on rotting plant and detrital material. [details]

Distribution South-east Asia (Sunda shelf only), including: Mekong Delta (Vietnam); West Kalimantan (Indonesia); and Sabah (Malaysia).  [details]

Etymology The specific epithet rhodochorde is composed by the Greek words rhodon, meaning 'rose', and chorde, meaning 'rope', and refers to the distinctive bright rose-pink colouration in life, and long cord-like appearance. It is a noun in apposition. [details]

Habitat In its native range (South-east Asia) it inhabits mud banks and mudflats of estuaries and rivers, from full seawater to almost freshwater, and appears to be strongly associated with the mangrove palm, Nypa fruticans. Normally the species inhabits tropical environments and do not survive well in temperatures below 20ºC. [details]

Human impact The species is exported as fish bait from the Mekong River Delta to the USA and Japan (Glasby et el, 2007: 26). It is also being sold for fish bait during summer in Spain (J. Gil, personal observation in Blanes, July 27, 2015) and Portugal (L. Cancela da Fonseca, personal communication, September 02, 2016). [details]

Reproduction In the Mekong River delta it spawns from September to November with females becoming red and males green, and both becoming good swimmers.  [details]

Type locality Sungai Kakap, 19 km west of Pontianak, West Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia (00º03.1'S, 109º10.0'E), intertidal, mangrove area, sediment associated with Nypa palms (Nypa fruticans Wurmb). [details]
