Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from the sublittoral zone, from low tide up to a depth of 200 m (Ref. 2754). A microalgae herbivore (Ref. 96488). This is an epibenthic species found on reefs (Ref. 95730), and occurs at the low tide mark (Ref. 2754). It is one of the most abundant microgastropods inhabiting the alga Gelidium latifolium and prefers to live at the base of the plant (Ref. 96520). 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).
