Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found at depths of 15 to 25 m, on alga-covered rock (Ref. 337). Also from offshore reefs and lagoons (Ref. 75835) and on coral reef flats or shallow tide pools generally on thin sandy layer, which may often be bound by algal filaments (Ref. 87884). Members of the family Cerithiidae are herbivore-deposit feeders (Ref. 1385). Members of the order Neotaenioglossa are mostly gonochoric and broadcast spawners. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktonic trocophore larvae and later into juvenile veligers before becoming fully grown adults (Ref. 833).
