Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Medium-sized (up to 75 mm long) bristle worm whose body narrows towards both ends. The eversible proboscis has papillae and four jaws. The antennae are very small. Segments are subdivided into rings. Small parapodia with clear gills. Colour: milk white. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Glycera alba prefers sediments with a median grain size of 50 to 250 μm but is also found in coarser sediments (up to 500 μm). The species furthermore tends to prefer sediments with a mud content of 10-20%. The high relative occurrence in sediments with a mud content of 40-50% is considered unreliable. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Prefers mud and sand substrate; found in the littoral and sublittoral zone [details]
