Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Reproduction and larval development take place in spring and early summer. The species has a long pelagic stage. Most phyllodocids are considered predators, catching their prey with their muscular pharynx. They feed on a variety of small invertebrates, e.g. polychaetes, and fish. Cannibalism is widespread (Hartmann-schröder, 1971; Wolff, 1973; Fauchald & Jumars, 1979). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution 
Highest densities are found north of the Wadden islands. lt is found in lower numbers on the Brown Bank, at the Broad Fourteens, along the coast and at a few stations on the Cleaver Bank and Dogger Bank. A. groenlandica has not been observed in the Oyster Ground, the Wadden Sea and the Delta area. Earlier studies, however, mention this species from the Delta area. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat A. groenlandica lives in fine to coarse sediment with a low content of mud. lt is sometimes found in empty tubes of other polychaetes (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Wolff, 1973). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology A relatively large worm with an elongated, flattened body, slightly tapering towards both ends. The head is well developed and bears four frontal antennae and two small eyes. The body segments are uniform with prominent parapodia bearing distinct rectangular lamellae on top. The body measures 50-100 mm with 700 segments. lt is greenish yellow in colour with three transverse bands of brown and blue (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Hayward & Ryland, 1990). [details]
