From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology 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]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat 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]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat B. guilliamsoniana mainly lives in medium to fine sand with a very low mud content. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology 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]
