Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority M. Sars, 1850 [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Simple bristle worm without distinct appendages. The body is relatively long (up to 300 mm) and is
separated into a relatively thick, cylindrical anterior end coloured purple to dark red and a thinner
bright red or yellowish posterior end. The head is short and conical. The species lives in a spiralled burrow. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Notomastus latericeus has a relatively low frequency of occurrence, but is found across the entire Belgian part of the North Sea. The species is almost completely (1976-1986 period) or even completely absent (1994-2001 period) in the eastern coastal zone only. In the 1976-1986 period densities remained below 100 ind./m2 whereas densities up to approximately 600 ind./m2 were recorded in the 1994-2001 period. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Notomastus latericeus has no clear preference for a specific median grain size: the habitat preference appears to be mainly determined by the mud content. Sediments with a mud content of 0 to 50% are suitable for N. latericeus, but the species displays a preference for sediments with a mud content of 10-30% (relative occurrence: > 50%). [details]
