Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription A tube-living bristle worm whose body consists of two parts: a swollen anterior end with a reduced
head and specially formed segments and a narrowed posterior end. The head has numerous active
feeding tentacles. Three pairs of bright-red gills are present on the first three segments behind the
head. Measures up to 300 mm long. The tube consists of medium-sized to large sand grains with a
characteristic fan shape at the top. Several tubes together can form so-called ‘sand reefs’. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Lanice conchilega is widely distributed on the Belgian part of the North Sea. However, the frequency of occurrence was the highest in the near-coastal zone in both periods. Whereas the species occurred along the entire coast in the 1976-1986 period, Lanice conchilega appeared to be practically absent in the eastern coastal zone in the 1994-2001 period. In both periods densities up to 1,000s ind./m2 were observed with a maximum density of about 10,000 ind./m2 in the 1994-2001 period. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Lanice conchilega is found in various sediments but displays a preference for fine to medium-grained sediments (100 to 500 μm) with a relatively high mud content (10 to 40%). [details]
