Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Atlantic coast of France (Noirmoutier). Southwestern Atlantic: French Guiana; Brazil.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Type habitat given only as the coast of Noirmoutier (France). According to Glasby (1999) the island presents today a variety of coastal habitats including sandy beaches, rocky headlands, salt marshes in the north and east, and a vast sand flat at Passage du Gois. The species was not found in any of these habitats during a brief survey performed in 1986, but a reference to a bright red, nereid-like polychaete inhabiting salt farm areas of the north-east could represent the species. Specimens from Ilha de Marajó (Brazil) were found on a beach in brackish to freshwater.  [details]
