As a hermit crab, "Calcinus verrillii" needs to find suitable empty shells of gastropod molluscs in which to live as it grows. It commonly inhabits shells of "Cerithium litteratum", but empty shells can sometimes be in short supply. On some occasions the hermit crab takes up abode in the calcified tube of the vermetid gastropod "Spiroglyphus irregularis". It also sometimes uses the tubes of the turritelids "Vermicularia knorrii" and "Vermicularia
". These tubes are normally attached to rocks, and when this is the case, the hermit crab no longer has freedom of movement to gather fragments of algae off the rock or scavenge for its food. Instead the crab becomes a filter feeder. The advantages to the crab in making use of such a tube-like shell is that it is less likely to be swept off the rocks by strong water movements, and plenty of food may be brought to it by the current. Female "C. verrillii" grow larger than males, and are more likely to occupy tube shells.
