Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species serves commonly as food in the Southeast Asia and Indonesia (Ref. 349). Common on mud tidal banks. Animals often concentrate in the wettest spots, when the mud bottom is partly dry at low tide. Occurs at the low tide mark (Ref. 349). 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).
