Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Long, thin and very active worm with approximately 200 identical segments (up to several cms long).
The head bears four little antennae. The dorsal half of the parapodia bears a large leaf-like lamella. Its colour ranges from white to light grey with brown patches or brownish-green broad transverse bands. This species is carnivorous and secretes slime upon contact. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In the 1976-1986 period Eteone longa was distributed across the entire Belgian part of the North Sea but was only observed in relatively low densities (maximum 140 ind./m2). In the 1994-2001 period a different distribution pattern was noted: the distribution of E. longa was mainly limited to the nearcoastal zone, with the exception of the eastern coastal zone. In this zone the species was found in densities of maximum 550 ind./m2. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Eteone longa is found in sediments with a wide range of median grain sizes: the species is only absent in very fine (< 100 µm) and very coarse sediments (> 500 µm). An optimum (relative occurrence > 20%) is reached with a median grain size of 150 to 250 µm. Eteone longa displays a preference (relative occurrence: > 40%) for relatively high mud contents (30 to 50%), but is found in sediments with other mud contents as well. [details]
