Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Depth based on occurrence record; to be replaced with better reference. Most common in oyster beds and among growths of algae (Ref. 290). Found from subtidal to 40 m (Refs. 289, 75835). Members of the class Polyplacophora are mostly gonochoric. Life cycle: Eggs hatch into lecitotrophic planktonic trocophore larvae (no veliger stage) which later metamorphose and settle on the bottom as young adults (Ref. 833).
