Assumed total length is 9 cm (Ref. 344). Epibiotic (Ref. 104365). Found in soft bottoms (mud or sand), sometimes on seagrass environment at shallow intertidal depths (Ref. 271). Commensal with amphipods (Ref. 82302). 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).
