Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in stony bottoms and in oyster beds (Ref. 289); undersurfaces of stones and rocks (Ref. 1867). Found from intertidal to 80 m (Ref. 75835). Members of the class Polyplacophora are mostly gonochoric. Life cycle: Eggs hatch into lecitotrophic planktonic trocophore larvae (no veliger stage) which later metamorphose and settle on the bottom as young adults (Ref. 833).
