Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Oersted, 1843 [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology N. longosetosa breeds from January to early spring and seems to have planktonic larvae. The species is a carnivorous predator, feeding on small invertebrates (Wolff, 1973; Fauchald & Jumars, 1979; Olive & Morgan, 1991). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution The species occurs in the subtidal zone of the western Wadden Sea, in the shallow waters along the coast and in the Southern Bight down to a depth of 50 m. N. longosetosa is also common at the Dogger Bank, but is absent from the central Oyster Ground. It has not been observed in the Delta area. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Eastern Arctic to Massachusetts [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat This species is reported from a wide variety of sediments, e.g. gravel to coarse sand, on oyster banks and among tubes of Lanice conchilega, in the study area it shares a preference for the fine to medium sand with N. cirrosa. In this respect N. longosetosa clearly differs from N. hombergii, which seems to prefer muddier substrates. [details]

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

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology A slender nephtyid, resembling N. cirrosa macroscopically, but differing from it by the presence of dorsal cirri and by details of the parapodial lobes and gills. The body measures up to 150 mm in length with 120 segments. It is cream-coloured to colourless (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Sips, 1988; Hayward & Ryland, 1990; Rainer, 1991). [details]
