Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found intertidal on fine sand (Ref. 53). Creates large lettuce leaf-like formation on intertidal to subtidal depths among rubble and weed; a group of 5 to 20 specimens is often seen with surrounding epiphytic growths on the left valve (Ref. 101147). Living at 10-67 m (Ref. 89006). 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).
