Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth from Ref. 118693. To 1.6 cm in size (unit not given) (Ref. 95344). Found on rocky shores along the intertidal zone. Abundant in some areas (Ref. 95344). Mesograzer (Ref. 118689). Feeds and lives on a variety of macroalgae in rocky subtidal zone, including Fucus distichus edentatus, Chondrus crispus, Fucus serratus, Mastocarpus stellatus and Laurencia pinnatiada. Exhibits seasonal abundance in kelp habitats, where it dominantly feeds on Laminaria saccharina (Ref. 118682) Macrocystis integrifolia and Nereocystis luetkeana (Ref. 118689). 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).
