Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

In the Baltic Sea, generally inhabits the marine region (Ref. 95752). Both infaunal and epifaunal on Zostera eelgrass (Ref. 95819). Adults, when not attached to a host, is free living, possibly on and beneath stones and macrophytes (Ref. 95835). Semi-mobile; parasitic (Refs. 95728, 95752). Members of the class Clitellata are copulating hermaphrodites. The clitellum, their distinctive feature from polychaetes, serves as a tool in reproduction. It secretes mucus for copulation and forms a cocoon where eggs and albumen are deposited. Life cycle: Zygotes develop in the cocoon and emerge as juveniles which later develop into adults (Ref. 833).
