Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In the 1976-1986 period Leucothoe incisa was only observed five times (maximum 60 ind./m2), which made it impossible to deduce a distribution patterns. In the 1994-2001 period the species had a wider distribution in the near-coastal zone, with the exception of the eastern coastal zone. The species occurred in densities up to 160 ind./m2. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Leucothoe incisa is found in sediments with different grain sizes, but displays a slight preference (relative occurrence: maximum 20%) for fine-grained sediments (median grain size 150 to 300 μm). The species furthermore prefers sediments with a mud content not exceeding 40%. [details]
