Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Small, flat crab with a cordiform carapax notched around the edge with a dense fringe of long hairs.
Up to 20 mm long. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In both periods Thia scutellata was found on the Belgian part of the North Sea with a low distribution frequency and in low densities (maximum 30 ind./m2). The species was mainly observed outside the coastal zone. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Thia scutellata prefers coarse-grained sediments with a low mud content (maximum 10%). The coarser the sediment, the larger the chance of finding this particular species. However, the relative occurrence never exceeds 25%. [details]
