Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat From the intertidal zone up to a depth of about 100 m, in more or less muddy but sandy sediments. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorIdentification This species has often been mistaken for N. hombergii Savigny, 1818, which co-occur with N. assimilis, but the former species is more abundant, around 90 % (about 200 ind m-²) of the total abundance of these two species. So that N. hombergii was probably already present in Northern France before 1991. [details]
