Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Subtidal (Ref. 105316). Inhabits fine well-sorted sand (Ref. 2780) and muddy sands (Ref. 107005). Often buried into substrate with its proboscis protruding. Emerges at night to forage (Ref. 107005). Genus is known to scavenge (Ref. 104227). Juveniles feed on detritus-rich substrate while adults are carnivores and scavengers (Ref. 107005). Members of the order Neogastropoda are mostly gonochoric and broadcast spawners. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktonic trocophore larvae and later into juvenile veligers before becoming fully grown adults (Ref. 833).
