Etymology The name tener‘ is Latin for “tender, sensitive". All specimens from Station 17 were moribund or dead when they were fixed and it appears that the species is sensitive to H2S, which contaminated the top layer when the sediment was stirred up during sampling and sieving (see the same remarks for Rhyacodrilus lutulentus above). [details]

Holotype BMNH 1983:67:14, geounit Hong Kong [details]
From editor or global species database
Depth range Brackish-water, intertidal and subtidal soft mud and muddy sand. [details]

Distribution Known only from China [Hainan, Hong Kong, Jiaozhou Bay (at Qingdao), Taiwan]. [details]

Distribution Northern and Southern China [details]

Ecology brackish-water tubificid [details]

Ecology In Hong Kong the species was found in brackish water only (salinity range 0-30 ppt), the present material was collected in a salt marsh at the edge of a river mouth (western part of Huang Dao), which at the time of collection had a high salinity (36 ppt), probably caused by evaporation. The species thus appears to tolerate great fluctuations in salinity (as do most intertidal forms). [details]

Ecology Intertidal muddy (soft or coarse) sediments. [details]

Ecology Northern and southern mainland China, and Taiwan (new record). Brackish-water, intertidal and subtidal (to about 3 m depth) soft mud and muddy sand. [details]

Ecology Intertidal soft mud and muddy sand, estuarine. [details]

Etymology The name tener‘ is Latin for “tender, sensitive". All specimens from Station 17 were moribund or dead when they were fixed and it appears that the species is sensitive to H2S, which contaminated the top layer when the sediment was stirred up during sampling and sieving (see the same remarks for Rhyacodrilus lutulentus above). [details]
