Arenicola marina and synaptid holothurians in extremely shallow soft mud
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||In very shallow extremely sheltered very soft muds Arenicola marina may form very conspicuous mounds and casts. At such sites, high densities of synaptid holothurians such as Labidoplax media and Leptosynapta bergensis occur. This biotope typically occurs in waters shallower than about 5 m in sheltered basins of sealochs and lagoons that may be partially separated from the open sea by tidal narrows or rapids. Sediment surfaces may become covered by a diatom film at certain times of the year.|
