Vetigastropods are found in most marine habitats from the intertidal zone to the deep sea. They occur on rocky substrates; on and in soft sediments; on such exotic deep sea habitats as waterlogged food, the egg cases of sharks and skates, and plant debris; and in close association with other marine invertebrates. Some impressive radiations of vetigastropods have occurred at deep-sea hydrothermal vents and cold seeps. Many of the smallest taxa are found in interstitial (spaces between sand grains) habitats.
