This is a benthic species found on muddy and sandy bottoms, coastal lagoons and on seagrass particularly in intertidal and subtidal areas (Ref. 83939). Suspension feeder (Ref. 68823). Members of the phylum Phoronida are mostly hermaphroditic. Life cycle: Embryos develop into free-swimming planktotrophic actinotrocha larvae which later sinks to the bottom and metamorphose into benthic adults (Ref. 833).
