NO COMMON NAME (Oligotrema sandersi): SPECIES ACCOUNT

Sorberaceans live in all the oceans of the world but have not been found in the northernmost waters of the Arctic Ocean or the northern part of the Pacific Ocean.


Sorberaceans live at the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean, although some have been found in shallower water. The deep bottom is almost always soft and covered by a thick layer of mud, on which sorberaceans live unattached.


Sorberaceans probably eat small moving invertebrates (in-VER-teh-brehts), or animals without a backbone.


Sorberaceans have no known importance to people.


Sorberaceans are not considered threatened or endangered.
