Abludomelita obtusata has no clear preference for a specific grain size: the species is found in sediments with a median grain size up to 500 μm. However, a clear preference can be seen with regard to the mud content. Abludomelita obtusata reaches a relative occurrence of over 40% in sediments with a mud content of 10 to 40%. The species is nevertheless also observed in sediments with higher or lower mud contents.
