Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Regularly collected for food and shellcraft in many countries of the Indo-West Pacific area (Ref. 349). Among rocks and under stones, in rocky shores. Also found in shallow subtidal depths. Sometimes very common (Ref. 349). Feeds on epilithic algae by grazing (Ref. 85382). Found in intertidal, on rocks (Ref. 75835). Members of the order Patellogastropoda 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).
