Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits deep-water coral reef mound (Ref. 105183). It is also found in sublittoral to abyssal depths, usually attached to rocks, stones, gorgonians, or hydroids on muddy and sandy substrates (Ref. 90120). Epibionts on the trunk of the black coral Leiopathes glaberrima bush (Ref. 105183). Colonized by the parasitic foraminifer Hyrrokkin sarcophaga (Ref. 105186). Suspension feeder (Ref. 105183). In general, suspension feeding bivalves mainly depend on phytoplankton and detritus material for nutrition (Ref. 107088). 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).
