tapering in a clear angle. The back is somewhat less acuminate than in the Tellina fabula. The shell surface is practically smooth with only fine growth lines. Measures up to 30 mm long. The colour varies from white with dark colour bands to pinkish red. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Tellina tenuis was found in both periods in the western near-coastal zone. In addition, the species was also observed in the area of the Hinder Banks, but only in the 1994-2001 period. The frequency of occurrence in both periods was relatively low and the species never reached high density levels (maximum 30 ind./m2). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution T. tenuis does not occur in the offshore parts of the North Sea, but is restricted to a narrow zone along the coast, the Wadden Sea, the Oosterschelde and part of the Westerschelde. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Spawning occurs in June-August. T. tenuis most probably has a pelagic larval stage. Longevity is reported to be about five years. The species usually lies on the left valve, a few centimetres below the sediment-surface. its burrowing depth depends on the tide and exceeds 10 cm at low tide (Tebble, 1966; Wolff, 1973; Fish & Fish, 1989). T. tenuis is a suspension feeder with tendencies to selective deposit-feeding. lt takes vegetable detritus, but diatoms may also occur in the gut. Young flatfish often feed on the tips of the protruding siphons, which are subsequently regenerated (Wolff, 1973; Fish & Fish, 1989).

T tenuis is sensitive to low winter temperatures and therefore shows low nurnbers after cold winters (Beukerna, 1979; Beukema & Essink, 1986). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription A thin, strongly flattened shell with an irregular oval shape. Front edge broadly rounded, back edge
tapering in a clear angle. The back is somewhat less acuminate than in the Tellina fabula. The shell surface is practically smooth with only fine growth lines. Measures up to 30 mm long. The colour varies from white with dark colour bands to pinkish red. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Tellina tenuis was found in both periods in the western near-coastal zone. In addition, the species was also observed in the area of the Hinder Banks, but only in the 1994-2001 period. The frequency of occurrence in both periods was relatively low and the species never reached high density levels (maximum 30 ind./m2). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution T. tenuis does not occur in the offshore parts of the North Sea, but is restricted to a narrow zone along the coast, the Wadden Sea, the Oosterschelde and part of the Westerschelde. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Tellina tenuis occurs in a wide range of sediments: median grain size of 150 to 500 μm. The main restrictive factor appears to be the mud content: the species only occurs in sediments with a mud content < 20%. The relative occurrence of 10% in sediments with a mud content of 40-50% is considered an outlier and hence seen as unreliable. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat T. tenuis generale inhabits fine, clean sand, with low percentages of silt. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology A brittle, somewhat flattened shell. The right valve is slightly larger than the left one. lt is nearly oval in outline and measures up to 25 mm in length. The shell is covered with fine concentric lines. The growth stages are clear. The colour is very variable, including white, shades of pink, yellow, and orange, often arranged in distinct bands. The inside of the shell is coloured like the outside, but normally fainter (Tebble, 1966; Fish & Fish, 1989; Hayward & Ryland, 1990). [details]
