Piddocks with a sparse associated fauna in upward-facing circalittoral very soft chalk or clay
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Horizontal plains of soft chalk and firm clay bored by bivalves. Species vary with location but Pholas dactylus, Barnea candida and Zirfaea crispata are recorded regularly. Found mainly in south-east England (Sussex and Thanet) although some Irish records exist. Other species present include Polydora ciliata and Crepidula fornicata. The rock surface is very friable or erodes very quickly and therefore unsuitable for larger species to settle and attach.|
