Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Short, thick, tube-living bristle worm up to 50 mm long. The head has a special form and is covered at the top by golden bristles (digging function) and tentacle membranes and is furthermore characterised by two pairs of carmine gills. The tube is constructed of medium-sized sand grains and is buried in the sediment with the worm upside down. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Pectinaria koreni is widely spread in the Belgian part of the North Sea in both periods. A higher frequency of occurrence was nevertheless observed in the near-coastal zone, especially in the 1994-2001period. In both periods high densities of P. koreni were observed (1976-1986 period: maximum 1,100 ind./m2; 1994-2001 period: maximum 350 ind./m2). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Pectinaria koreni displays a clear preference for fine sediments: the finer the sediment, the higher the relative occurrence (maximum > 40%). The species is nevertheless also found in sediments with a median grain size up to 500 µm. Although the species occurs in sediments with strongly varying mud contents, P. koreni is not found in sediments characterised by high mud contents or by absence of mud. [details]
