Abstract: A study of the activity patterns of Collisella scabra showed that the most prevalent movement occured during periods of submergence with no difference between daylight and darkness. Furthermore, studies showed that cephalic tentacles are not essential to the homing ability of this species, but they do play a role in the ability to detect the directionality of mucous trails.
