Gastropoda | Neritopsina
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Benthic; depth range 0 - 1 m (Ref. 100889). Tropical
Indo-West Pacific: from the Gulf of Bengal to Papua New Guinea; north to southern Japan and south to Queensland.
Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 3.5 cm SHL male/unsexed; (Ref. 349); common length : 2.5 cm SHL male/unsexed; (Ref. 349)
Collected for food and for the shell by coastal populations (Ref. 349). Depth range is based on occurrence in Mexico (Ref. 100889); to be replaced with a better reference. Common on intertidal rocks. Individuals become inactive in crevices while submerged; thus, avoiding submergence (Ref. 100888). Members of the order Neritopsina 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).
