Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDepth range Type material collected at 34 fathoms (62 meters).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material Southward (1956) stated that "The type specimens are at present in the author's possession and will, in due course, be sent to the British Museum". However, the Zoological Collection Database of the Natural History Museum does not make any reference of type material of Aricidea minuta having been deposited in its collections (consulted online 12 May 2013 by João Gil). [details]

From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Spawning occurs between October and January. Mature females usually have less than 100 ova, which suggests a non- pelagic development. A. minuta presumably is a surface deposit feeder (Wolff, 1973; Fauchald & Jumars, 1979). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution On the Dutch Continental Shelf, A. minuta is most frequent in the sandy sediments of the Southern Bight. lt furthermore occurs north of the island of Rottum, on the Dogger Bank, in the western Wadden Sea and in the Oosterschelde, where it is very abundant. [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 A. minuta lives in fine and muddy sands mixed with shell fragrnents (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Wolff, 1973). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology Body minute, up to 15 mm long and made up of around 45 segments. The head is bluntly conical with one small median antenna and without eyes. Ten to twelve pairs of simple gills are present from the fourth segment backwards. The parapodial lobes are small and finger-like. The species has no distinctive colour (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971). [details]
