Type-locality: Roscoff environs. Habitat: marine benthic, intertidal

Descriptions[edit]

  • Bocquet, 1950
  • Bocquet, 1953

Distribution[edit]

Low boreal species, distributes on the British Isles, in the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay (Bocquet, 1950, 1953, Naylor & Haahtela, 1966, De Grave & Holmes, 1998, Junoy & Castellό, 2003).

Habitat[edit]

Littoral marine benthic species. Peaks of densities are generally below mid tidal level. Stony substrates are preferred, but rarely occurs also on algae (Bocquet, 1953, Naylor & Haahtela, 1966, De Grave & Holmes, 1998).
