From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Although the type locality of this taxon is on the Atlantic coast of the USA, most reports for this species
are from the Mediterranean basin. There has also been some confusion in the records indicating that other
Batillipes taxa may belong to B. dicrocercus (see e.g. Maucci & Durante (1984), Hummon (1994) and
Rodriguez-Roda (1947, 1952) who recorded B. mirus in Spain). Similarly, some B. dicrocercus records may
belong to different taxa. For example, Hummon (1994) reported B. dicrocercus from Poland, which has been
questioned by Zawierucha et al. (2015), who suggested it belonged to B. noerrevangi. Batillipes dicrocercus
has been reported from different types of sand and detritus in the intertidal zone, and has occasionally been
collected in the subtidal down to ca. 80 m bsl. [details]
