Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 13.0 cm SHW male/unsexed; (Ref. 349); common length : 10.0 cm SHW male/unsexed; (Ref. 349)
Occasionally collected in shrimp trawls. Shell used in shellcraft (Ref. 349). Found on the bottoms of the continental shelf and upper slope. Also from shallow subtidal waters (Ref. 349). Members of the family Xenophoridae feed directly on sediments (Ref. 107881), collecting tiny detritus (Ref. 349) and foraminiferans (Ref. 104247). 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).
