Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In the 1976-1986 period Scolelepis bonnieri was mainly found in the area of the Flemish and Zeeland Banks whereas the species had a broader distribution in the 1994-2001 period (all sandbank systems except the Coastal Banks). However, the species never reached high densities (maximum 150 ind./m2). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat The habitat preference of Scolelepis bonnieri is positively correlated with the median grain size: the coarser the sediment, the larger the chance of finding S. bonnieri. However, this chance never exceeds 30%. The species furthermore prefers sediments with low mud contents: the higher the mud content, the smaller the chance to find S. bonnieri (maximum 20%). [details]
