Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Actively collected in the Southeast Asian countries, for its shell and large fleshy animal (Ref. 349). Common, but not aggregating in dense populations. In life, the exceptionally large green mantle almost covers the shell, which is then devoid of encrusting marine growths, unlike those of the other species (Ref. 349). Feeds on epilithic algae by grazing (Ref. 85382). Found in interidal, on coral (Ref. 75835). Members of the super group Prosobranchia are gonochoric (Ref. 833).
