Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected for food and for its shell (Ref. 349). Abundant in sheltered bays. Leaves meandering tracks at low tide on sandy shores. Occurs at the low tide mark (Ref. 349); or from immediate subtidal to 20 m in shelly sand (Ref. 337). Attacks bivalve prey through the umbo or valve center (Ref. 100855). 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).
