Distribution 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]

Description A bristle worm with a cylindrical body measuring up to 60 mm long. The head is acuminate and bears
two long palps. The parapodial flaps are prominently present and are dorsally fused with the gills of
each segment. The worm is coloured pink. [details]

Distribution 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]

Habitat 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]
