Mytilus edulis and piddocks on eulittoral firm clay
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Clay outcrops in the mid to lower eulittoral which are bored by a variety of piddocks including Pholas dactylus, Barnea spp. and the American piddock Petricola pholadiformis. The surface of the clay is characterised by small clumps of Mytilus edulis, with barnacles and the winkle Littorina littorea. Algae are generally sparse on the clay, although small patches of Corallina officinalis and Halurus flosculosus occur, usually attached to loose-lying cobbles or mussel shells. Species richness is generally low. [More data required for this biotope].|
