The mechanisms of particle capture and transport are similar to those seen in lamellibranch bivalves, in that the beating of lateral gill cilia draws water into the mantle cavity while other cilia capture particles on the gill surface for subsequent entanglement in mucus (Ward et al., 1994, 1998; Ward, 1996; Ward and Shumway, 2004; Beninger et al., 2007; reviewed by De-Clerk, 1995; Shumway et al., 2014).
