According to CAMERON (2002), Saxipendium, which lives on rocky outcrops and extend its proboscis in the water columns, seems to be a good candidate for filter feeding. The sperm of Saxipendium and the small eggs found in the female suggest non-specialized external fertilization and embryology leading to a planktotrophic larva.
