Holotype BMNH 1970:23, locality Scotland (Firemore Bay (Gaineahm Smuagh) Loch Ewe on the west coast of Scotland (described by McIntyre & Eleftheriou, 1968). Type material collected along traverse 2 (McIntyre & Eleftheriou, 1968), 212 m from its origin in the high tidal region. The collection was made at 5-12 cm depth, in sand of 220 µm mean grain diameter at a tidal height just above low water neaps.) [details]

Distribution Batillipes tubernatis is frequently reported from the waters around the UK, but has also been found off
the coast of Florida and Brazil. Specimens collected as Batillipes sp. from Elbe estuary (North Sea) (Riemann
1966) were later identified as B. tubernatis by Pollock (1971). This is an intertidal (to 13.5 m bsl in Elbe
estuary) and interstitial species usually found down to a few centimetres deep in sand sediments. It is also
present in seawater to low salinity, and polluted sediments (Elbe river: Riemann (1966) according to Pollock
(1971)). [details]
