Predators do include littorinid snails and nudibranchs. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorReproduction Asexual reproduction by buds and gemmules and sexual reproduction (internally) by eggs and sperm; free-swimming cilated larvae (in general, most species are believed to be hermaphroditic but may not produce male and female gametes simultaneously). [details]
