Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The distribution of this species is imperfectly known because of frequent confusion with other species of the genus (Ref. 348). Found in intertidal areas, in mud and sand, (Ref. 75831) and shallow sublittoral waters (Ref. 348). In sheltered bays and estuaries (Ref. 348). 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).
