Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution This is the third most commonly reported marine species (after Echiniscoides sigismundi sigismundi
and B. pennaki) and has been recorded mainly from the northern hemisphere. It is primarily an
intertidal species, but has also been reported from the subtidal zone. It has been found 0–60 cm deep in sand.
The type species of the genus was first described in by Richters (1909). Due to high variability in Batillipes
morphology, B. mirus may have been confused with similar species especially by early authors. This confusion
and potential species-complex precludes defining the geographic ranges and ecological requirements for this
taxon. [details]
