From editor or global species database
Habitat Eunice tubifex has a distinctive tube structure although Crossland does not give a figure of it. Evidently one of the eunicids which are associated with zigzag tubes. Crossland does not use that term but he makes a comparison with Eunice tibiana. Crossland comments: "One of the five species which make stiff leathery tubes with lateral openings." and "The openings of the tubes are arranged more or less alternately on either side as in E. tibiana Ehl, but are less numerous and the tubes are straighter. The basal part of the tube is very like the fragment figured by Ehlers (l. c. Taf. 22. fig. 1 ), which shows well their charteristic texture and surface. Although the tubewall is not thicker than ordinary brown paper and is free from foreign material, it is perfectly opaque and so tough and elastic that the tubes are cut or torn open with some difficulty." The tubes were attached to anchor chain, and to rock [details]
