Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorBiology The time of spawning varies greatly in different areas. Females with ripe eggs have been observed from May until autumn. Like all cirratulids, this species has non-pelagic larvae. Its life span does not exceed 2 years. C. setosa leads a sedentary life within the sediment and also lives in empty burrows of other polychaetes. The members of the family Cirratulidae primarily are deposit feeders that are mainly non-selective, but may be selective as in the case of C. setosa (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Wolff, 1973; Curtis, 1977; Fauchald & Jumars, 1979; Christie, 1985; Hily, 1987). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Except for the Delta estuaries and the Wadden Sea, C. setosa occurs in the entire area. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Gulf of St. Lawrence (unspecified region), lower St. Lawrence estuary, Saguenay Fjord; Prince Edward Island (from the northern tip of Miscou Island, N.B. to Cape Breton Island south of Cheticamp, including the Northumberland Strait and Georges Bay to the Canso Strait causeway); Cobscook Bay to Cape Hatteras [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat bathyal and circalittoral of the Gulf and estuary [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat The species has been recorded from many types of sediment, but shows a preference for the medium to fine grain sizes. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology The body of C. setosa is strongly tapered at both ends and lacks parapodia. It is composed of 70-90 segments and few centimetres long. The pointed head bears no eyes. Filiform gills are present on a large number of segments throughout the first half of the body. The tail segments have a characteristic circle of chaetae. The species is grey, brownish or bluish black in colour (Hartmann-Schröder, 1971; Hayward & Ryland, 1990). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorValidity Status needs revision. This species probably does not occur in the English Channel waters (Petersen, comm. pers.). Name is retained until profound examination of specimens. [details]
