Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Common depth and minimum depth range based on occurrences in Hawaii; maximum depth range based on occurrence in Marquesas. Depth ranges to be replaced with a better reference. Occurs in tidal pools on soft sediments and shallow rubble and sand at intertidal waters (Ref. 87907). Members of the class Bivalvia are mostly gonochoric, some are protandric hermaphrodites. Life cycle: Embryos develop into free-swimming trocophore larvae, succeeded by the bivalve veliger, resembling a miniature clam (Ref. 833).
