Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Polynoids, Harmothoe species included, are considered carnivores, feeding on a variety of small infaunal and epifauna invertebrates. The species has been found in the gut of fish, 3 notably cod and haddock. like other Polynoid species, H. glabra has been found associated with other infaunal organisms, viz. the lugworm Arenicola marina and various terebellid and chactopterid polychaetes (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Wolff, 1973; Fauchald & Jumars, 1979). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat H. glabra lives in fine-medium sand. The species has also been found under stones (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Wolff, 1973; Hayward & Ryland, 1990). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology The species bears some resemblance to Gattyana cirrosa, i.e. a flattened body, oval in outline and dorsally covered by soft and smooth scales (elytra). lt has 38-39 segments and reaches 30-50 mm in length. The head bears a median and lateral antenna and four big eyes. The parapodia have a tuft of hair- like chaetae that are characteristically thin and long, giving it the appearance of a pencil. The back is pale, sometimes with transverse brown bands. The elytra are pale yellow or colourless (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Fauchald & Jumars, 1979; Hayward & Ryland, 1990). [details]
