Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected locally for food in the Indo-Pacific, but mainly used for its shell (Ref. 349). Clean sandy bottoms; subtidal. Sometimes in very dense colonies (Ref. 75835). Members of the family Cerithiidae are herbivore-deposit feeders (Ref. 1385). Members of the order Neotaenioglossa 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).
