WHAT DOES SCAPHOPOD MEAN IN ENGLISH?

scaphopod

Tusk shell

The tusk shells or scaphopods are a class of shelled marine molluscs. The scientific name of this class is Scaphopoda, meaning literally "boat-footed". Shells of species within this class range from about 0.5 to 15 cm in length. Members of the Order Dentaliida are generally significantly larger than those of the Order Gadilida. These molluscs live on soft substrates offshore. Because of this subtidal habitat and the small size of most species, many beachcombers are unfamiliar with them; their shells are usually not nearly as common or as easily visible in the beach drift as the shells of sea snails and clams. Molecular data suggests that the scaphopods are a sister group to the cephalopods, although higher-level molluscan phylogeny remains somewhat unresolved.

Definition of scaphopod in the English dictionary

The definition of scaphopod in the dictionary is any marine mollusc of the class Scaphopoda, which includes the tusk shells.
