Abstract
An experiment was conducted to determine whether epiphytic algae, bottom detritus, Vallisneria detritus, and sand were ingested by Neritina reclivata. These materials were considered to be the primary potential foods either attached to or settling on surface inhabited by the snail. Results showed that N. reclivata ingested epiphytic algae but did not ingest sand.
