From other sources
Biology Bathyporeia spp. show two types of rnovement, swimming and burrowing, that may follow each other up in rapid succession. Often they seem to burrow with the dorsal side upwards. This may be associated with the breeding cycle. In deeper waters the spring rise in temperature initiates breeding, while in shallower waters it is induced by tidal phasing. Breeding of B. guilliamsoniana starts in January and becomes intense in May. In the deeper waters the breeding season is short and occurs only in spring. The breeding season in the shallower areas may extend into August (Watkin, 1939a, 1939b; Nicolaisen & Kanneworff, 1969; Finchham, 1971). Bathyporeia shows a typical feeding position lying upside down in a small cavity in the sand, and may be considered a selective deposit feeder. it feeds by cleaning sand grains from adhering micro-organisms and detritus (Nicolaisen & Kanneworff, 1969). [details]

Description Largest species of the Bathyporeia genus measuring up to 8 mm long. Robust and laterally flattened body. Head without rostrum but with clearly discernible eyes. The upper antennae seem to be standing on an outgrowth of the head. [details]

Distribution Bathyporeia guilliamsoniana was found in both periods across the entire Belgian part of the North Sea, with the exception of the eastern coastal zone. In both periods the species reached a maximum density of approximately 800 ind./m2. [details]

Distribution Iin the studied area B. guilliamsoniana is very abundant in the area of the Southern Bight, north of the Wadden islands, and at the Dogger Bank. The distribution pattern is almost the same as found for B. elegans, butB. guilliamsoniana is nearly missing at the Oyster Ground. [details]

Distribution often abundant [details]

Habitat Bathyporeia guilliamsoniana prefers coarse sediments with a median grain size > 200 μm (relative occurrence > 20%). The species further avoids sediments with high mud contents (maximum 20%) and reaches its maximum relative occurrence (± 20%) in sediments with a mud content not exceeding 10%. [details]

Habitat B. guilliamsoniana mainly lives in medium to fine sand with a very low mud content. [details]

Morphology B. guilliamsoniana is the largest species of the genus, with a length up to about 8 mm. The body is robust and laterally compressed. The head lacks a rostrum and the eyes are distinct. The telson is completely split. The body is devoid of pigment (Lincoln, 1979; Hayward & Ryland, 1990). Species of the genus Bathyporeia are remarkably similar in general morphology. They mostly differ in the number or size of little spines that are present at the plates covering their bodies. [details]
