Habitat Bathyporeia guilliamsoniana prefers coarse sediments with a median grain size > 200 μm (relative occurrence > 20%). The species further avoids sediments with high mud contents (maximum 20%) and reaches its maximum relative occurrence (± 20%) in sediments with a mud content not exceeding 10%. [details]
