Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Bristle worm with a rather corpulent, ventrally flattened body up to 60 mm long. The uniform segments feature distinct parapodia on which the dorsal lamellas are clearly visible. The head has two large black eyes and five antennae, one of which in the middle of the head. Four pairs of rather long, thin tentacles. The colour varies from greyish white with brown spots to reddish brown with white transverse bands. Eumida sanguinea often lives in association with the sand mason Lanice conchilega[details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Eumida sanguinea mainly occurs in the near-coastal zone. In the 1976-1986 the species had a low frequency of occurrence but was found across the entire near-coastal zone. The density was limited to a maximum of only 800 ind./m2. In the 1994-2001 period the frequency of occurrence increased, but the species appeared to be absent in the eastern coastal zone. The highest frequency of occurrence and density levels (up to 3,500 ind./m2) were observed in the western coastal zone and in the southern part of the Zeeland Banks. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Eumida sanguinea occurs in a wide spectrum of sediment types: the species only avoids sediments with a median grain size > 500 μm or with a mud content > 40%. An optimum is reached in sediments with a median grain size of 150-250 μm and a mud content of 10-40%. The high relative occurrence in sediments with a mud content of 80-90% is considered relatively unreliable in view of the low number of observations for this mud content. [details]
