Habitat Marine. According to Hurley (1956) ‘The specimens here described were collected at Orouiti Beach, East Cape, North Island. They occurred in considerable numbers, burrowing in fine yellow sand around a stagnant pool well above high-tide mark. They were very active, many of them jumping into the pool when disturbed and swimming quite vigorously until they reached the shore. In contrast to Talorchestia quoyana which was found under high-tide seaweed nearby, the T. telluris were well away from seaweed.
The Kaikorai specimens were on the freshwater side of dunes fringing the entrance of a stream into the sea. This was the only place on the beach where I was able to find T. telluris. However, T. quoyana was present on the oceanic side of the dunes and right along the beach.’ [details]
