Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Sthenelais boa has a limited distribution on the Belgian part of the North Sea: in both periods the species was only observed in the near-coastal zone, with the exception of the eastern coastal zone. Whereas S. boa was only found in low densities in the 1976-1986 period (maximum 12 ind./m2) densities up to 250 ind./m2 were recorded in the 1994-2001 period. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Sthenelais boa prefers fine-grained sediments with a median grain size of 150 to 250 μm. The species is nevertheless also found in finer and coarser sediments (up to 500 μm). Preference is given to sediments that are to some extent enriched with mud (maximum 40%). The highest relative occurrence (60%) is reached in sediments with a mud content of 10-20%. [details]
