Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Uncertain, because of confusion with T. drummondii and Ekmania barthii. Lives in depths of 4 to 200 m, buried in muddy gravel and in Modiolus beds, Strangford Lough, Irish Sea, Firth of Clyde and, probably, north and west coasts of Scotland, northern North Sea. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy T. hyalinum(Forbes) was re-established by Hansen & McKenzie (1991) after T. pellucidum sensu Düben & Koren was not shown by McKenzie (1985) of the same species as the specimens Forbes described under the name hyalina.


It appears impossible to separate T. hyalinum from T. drummondi with any certainty in a museum material. The ossicles are indistinguishable and the creamy yellow or faint orange body colour in living T. drummondi fades when specimens are preserved. [details]
