Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in low tidal to 130 m in crevices and stones; dead specimens to 274 m (Ref. 337); also intertidal on rocks and coral (Ref. 75831). Commonly attached via strong byssal threads to the undersides of rock slabs and boulders in the lower eulittoral subzone and to dead coral and rocks in the shallow subtidal (Ref. 102838). 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).
