Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It is an infaunal species found in tide pools, sandy, pebbly, muddy and clay substrates from the intertidal area to a depth of 37 meters (Ref. 87801). Mainly a filter feeder (Ref. 105122), particularly a suspension feeder (Ref. 105121). It can switch to surface deposit-feeding based on food availability (Ref. 105122). 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).
