Description A bristle worm with a sturdy, elongate body with numerous segments and a maximum length of 150
mm. The worm is dorsally covered with soft scales (elytra) whose outer edges feature a characteristic fringe consisting of pinnate papillae. The head bears three minute antennae (two lateral ones and one in the middle) and two pairs of small eyes. [details]

Distribution The distribution of Sigalion mathildae was in both periods more or less limited to the western coastal zone, where densities up to 20 (1976-1986 period) and 200 ind./m2 (1994-2001 period) were observed. [details]

Habitat Sigalion mathildae prefers a very specifically defined sediment type characterised by fine-grained sediments (median grain size 150 to 250 μm) and the presence of a low mud content (maximum 20%). [details]
