Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution A widespread species occurring in the subtidal zone of the western Wadden Sea, the Southern Bight, part of the Oyster Ground and at the Dogger Bank. Highest densities are found near the coast. lt is absent from the Delta area and the central Oyster Ground. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In the 1976-1986 period Scolelepis bonnieri was mainly found in the area of the Flemish and Zeeland Banks whereas the species had a broader distribution in the 1994-2001 period (all sandbank systems except the Coastal Banks). However, the species never reached high densities (maximum 150 ind./m2). [details]

From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology In spite of its common occurrence there is little information available on its life history or behaviour. S. bonnieri lives in mobile sands and builds loosely constructed burrows or is free-living.
Members of the family Spionidae are generally considered surface deposit feeders, using their ciliated palps to select food particles (Fauchald & Jumars, 1979). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription A bristle worm with a cylindrical body measuring up to 60 mm long. The head is acuminate and bears
two long palps. The parapodial flaps are prominently present and are dorsally fused with the gills of
each segment. The worm is coloured pink. [details]

However, the species never reached high densities (maximum 150 ind./m2). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat The habitat preference of Scolelepis bonnieri is positively correlated with the median grain size: the coarser the sediment, the larger the chance of finding S. bonnieri. However, this chance never exceeds 30%. The species furthermore prefers sediments with low mud contents: the higher the mud content, the smaller the chance to find S. bonnieri (maximum 20%). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat S. bonnieri lives in a wide range of sediment types but seems to avoid substrates with a high mud content. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology Body cylindrical, with a maximum length of 40 mm and up to 90 segments. The head is pointed and bears two palps and a short median antenna of which the tip is free. The parapodia have distinct lobes on all segments and gills from one of the first segments onwards. The gills are fused with the upper lobe of the parapodia. The colour of the worm is pink (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971). [details]
