Up to 20 mm long. [details]

Distribution In both periods Thia scutellata was found on the Belgian part of the North Sea with a low distribution frequency and in low densities (maximum 30 ind./m2). The species was mainly observed outside the coastal zone. [details]

Habitat Thia scutellata prefers coarse-grained sediments with a low mud content (maximum 10%). The coarser the sediment, the larger the chance of finding this particular species. However, the relative occurrence never exceeds 25%. [details]
