From editor or global species database
Ecology authors: "This species has been found mostly in estuaries and sheltered bays in muddy and sandy sediments between 1 and 60 m in depth, but some specimens were also found in deeper exposed environments along the temperate and tropical coast of eastern Australia (Fig. 14). Galathowenia quelis sp. nov. cohabits with G. annae sp. nov. in some New South Wales estuaries. The holotype and other specimens were found with one parasitic copepod living inside the tube and attached to the worm body by its anterior end." [details]
