Comprehensive Description

Read full entry
Suspension feeding is the observed feeding mode in all brisingidans, but there are likely taxon-specific adjustments to flow regime and local feeding environment for different brisingidan taxa. Specimens generally isolated in abyssal environment, but often in large density on dead chimneys mainly in vent areas of Pacific mid-oceanic ridges; fewer at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Although observed on dead vent chimneys, most species of Freyella have been collected from abyssal soft-bottom sediments.
