Description A thin, strongly flattened shell with an irregular oval shape. Front edge broadly rounded, back edge
tapering in a clear angle. The back is somewhat less acuminate than in the Tellina fabula. The shell surface is practically smooth with only fine growth lines. Measures up to 30 mm long. The colour varies from white with dark colour bands to pinkish red. [details]

Distribution Tellina tenuis was found in both periods in the western near-coastal zone. In addition, the species was also observed in the area of the Hinder Banks, but only in the 1994-2001 period. The frequency of occurrence in both periods was relatively low and the species never reached high density levels (maximum 30 ind./m2). [details]

Description A thin, strongly flattened shell with an irregular oval shape. Front edge broadly rounded, back edge
tapering in a clear angle. The back is somewhat less acuminate than in the Tellina fabula. The shell surface is practically smooth with only fine growth lines. Measures up to 30 mm long. The colour varies from white with dark colour bands to pinkish red. [details]

Distribution Tellina tenuis was found in both periods in the western near-coastal zone. In addition, the species was also observed in the area of the Hinder Banks, but only in the 1994-2001 period. The frequency of occurrence in both periods was relatively low and the species never reached high density levels (maximum 30 ind./m2). [details]

Habitat Tellina tenuis occurs in a wide range of sediments: median grain size of 150 to 500 μm. The main restrictive factor appears to be the mud content: the species only occurs in sediments with a mud content < 20%. The relative occurrence of 10% in sediments with a mud content of 40-50% is considered an outlier and hence seen as unreliable. [details]
