- n. Plural form of endodontid.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
One interesting behavioral characteristic of the Pacific Island endodontids is the use of the shell's umbilicus as an egg brood chamber see, for example, Solem & Climo, 1985.
The authors suggest that what they observed may be the ancestral plesiomorphic state of a character that evolved further in the Pacific endodontids.
