Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription A thin, oval shell measuring 3 mm long. The outside is smooth with a sculpture of fine concentric
growth lines located close to each other. The colour of the shell varies from yellowish white to dark
reddish brown. Frequently lives in association with the brittle star Acrocnida brachiata[details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Although Mysella bidentata can be found across the entire Belgian part of the North Sea, the species mainly occurs in the near-coastal zone. In this zone the species reaches a high relative occcurence. In the 1976-1986 period the species was found to occur commonly in the eastern coastal zone, whereas Mysella bidentata was almost completely absent in that area in the 1994-2001 period. During both periods the maximum density was 4,000 to 4,500 ind./m2. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Mysella bidentata can be observed in all sediment types to be found on the Belgian part of the North Sea. The species nevertheless tends to prefer fine-grained sediments (median grain size 50-250 Ám) with a mud content of 10-40%. In sediments with a mud content of 20-30% a relative occurrence of 90% can be observed. [details]
