Description: Shell has spiral ridges. Has at least three prominent wing-like structures, worn off in older snails. Color is brown and white to creamy-white. Young snails have tooth-like projections on the lip of the shell (Ref. 312).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in the low intertidal zone. Uses the radula to bore through the calcareous shells of its prey (clams, mussels, and barnacles; Ref. 312) (Ref. 312). Members of the order Neogastropoda 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).
