Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution This is a common and widely distributed species, but mainly in the temperate zone of the northern
hemisphere. d’Hondt (1970) suggested that some records of B. mirus, especially in the neighbourhood of
Roscoff (France), should be classified as B. pennaki. In general, this is an intertidal and interstitial species
reported to occur 0–80 cm deep in different types of sand substrate, but it has also been reported from the
subtidal zone in the Mediterranean basin and Indian Ocean. [details]
