Urticina felina on sand-scoured circalittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Urticina felina on boulder or sand-scoured rock often adjacent to sandy sediment plains. On more open coasts sand-covered rock often has Ciocalypta penicillus (Urt.Cio) whereas this biotope seems to occur in more coastal conditions where turbidity is higher and scour possibly greater. This biotope occurs in tide-swept conditions at many sites, but seems to be rarely recorded as a separate entity from adjacent rocky substrata. The inclusion of data from this sediment-interface biotope often distorts the adjacent rocky biotope's species composition.|
