Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky coasts in intertidal zones, usually in high-energy environments. Known to exhibit 'homing' behavior, moving in search of shelter during the day and foraging at night (Ref. 355). Members of the order Neritopsina 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).
