Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth based on occurrence record (Ref. 105142); to be replaced with a better reference. It is found on sandy and muddy bottoms, in low intertidal areas to a depth of 15 meters (Ref. 865). Subtidal populations aggregate in dense beds to a depth of 110 m (Ref. 105142). Adults bury up to 1 m (Ref. 105154). Juveniles are preyed upon by fish, starfish, crabs, and snails (Ref. 105142). 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).
