Found buried in sandy-muddy substrate, in relatively sheltered areas along the intertidal zone to depths of 55 meters, at times on eelgrass (Ref. 93817). 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).
