Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Medium-sized (up to 150 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 without gills. Colour: greyish white. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In both periods G. capitata was mainly distributed in the open sea zone. The species was nevertheless also observed in the coastal zone (1994-2001: especially the western coastal zone). Its density always remained rather low with a maximum of 170 ind./m2 (1994-2001 period). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Arctic to Rhode Island [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Known from seamounts and knolls [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Glycera capitata is observed in sediments of nearly all median grain sizes, but displays a preference for coarser sediments: a relative occurrence of approximately 40% is reached in sediments with a median grain size > 400 μm. The habitat preference of the species is furthermore characterised by its absence in sediments with a mud content > 20%. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat bathyal, infralittoral and circalittoral of the Gulf and estuary [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Family: Glyceridae, according to Trott (2004). [details]
