Description This bristle worm has a thin (1 mm) and relatively long body (100 mm). Two regions can be distinguished across the body: an anterior end with twelve bristle-covered segments and a posterior end with segments with thickened parapodial grooves. The anterior end is coloured red, the posterior end reddish green or yellow. [details]

Distribution In both sampling periods the distribution area of Heteromastus filiformis was mainly limited to the coastal zone. The highest numbers were observed here as well (up to maximum 450 ind./m2).
Contrary to the 1994-2001 period, the species had a higher frequency of occurrence in the eastern
coastal zone in the 1976-1986 period. The density levels for this species at other locations (Flemish
Banks and Zeeland Banks) were rather low. [details]

Description This bristle worm has a thin (1 mm) and relatively long body (100 mm). Two regions can be distinguished across the body: an anterior end with twelve bristle-covered segments and a posterior end with segments with thickened parapodial grooves. The anterior end is coloured red, the posterior end reddish green or yellow. [details]

Distribution In both sampling periods the distribution area of Heteromastus filiformis was mainly limited to the coastal zone. The highest numbers were observed here as well (up to maximum 450 ind./m2).
Contrary to the 1994-2001 period, the species had a higher frequency of occurrence in the eastern
coastal zone in the 1976-1986 period. The density levels for this species at other locations (Flemish
Banks and Zeeland Banks) were rather low. [details]

Habitat Heteromastus filiformis has a clear preference for fine sediments. The species has a high relative occurrence (> 20%) in sediments with a median grain size of 100-200 μm. In addition, the species tends to prefer sediments with high mud contents: although the relative occurrence follows an erratic pattern, the species occurs more frequently as the mud content increases. [details]
