Desrnodora cazca is widely distributed in Australia in mangrove mud-flats. Observations are made on its morphology by light and scanning electron microscopy. Its population density and distribution have been studied in a localised area on the Clyde River estuary in S.E. New South Wales, Australia. Quite large fluctuations were observed over the course of several years but at any one time its distribution within the mangroves was fairly uniform. It reproduces throughout the year. Estimates are given of its biomass, carbon and nitrogen content and oxygen consumption per m2. In laboratory culture it requires particles less than 200 μm and reproduces when fed with the diatom Cylindrotheca sp. Supplying this diatom labelled with [14C]methylglucosc shows that these diatoms are food for D. cazca.
