Found in estuarine and inshore areas (Ref. 96352) or near-coastal zones in a variety of sediment types but commonly in fine-grained to muddy substrates (Ref. 7882). Usually associated with rich organic sediment (Ref. 96352). Often associated with the brittle star Acrocnida brachiata (Ref. 7882). A subsurface suspension feeder (Ref. 96501), i.e., a microvore that feeds on organic detritus (Ref. 96352). 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).
