From editor or global species database
Ecology Among the differences from Arenicola marina (blow lug) is that the cast shapes differ, with A. defodiens (black lug) producing neatly coiled casts, usually containing anoxic sediment (reflecting the greater depth of the burrow), whereas A. marina casts are an untidy pile, not usually containing anoxic sediment. Arenicola defodiens occurs on shores that are less sheltered than those where A. marina occurs, hence its former 'laminarian' nickname. [details]

Etymology authors: "specific name defodiens is derived from Latin defodio to dig deep or dig up and refers to the depth of the black lug burrow" [details]
