|Under some conditions Philine orientalis interfered with predation on small clams by Dungeness Crabs (Metacarcinus magister) and Green Crabs (Carcinus maenas), but only when both crab species were present, and only at certain levels of density of the three predators (Newsom and Williams 2014).|
|Phiiline orientalis was a significant predator on small bivalves in Bodega Harbor, CA (Newsom and Williams 2014).|
