From editor or global species database
Depth range 0.5-3 m in brackish-water lagoons and coastal ponds; 3.5 to about 100 m in marine environments. [details]

Distribution Mediterranean Sea: Balearic Sea; Sea of Sardinia; Sardinian Channel; Tyrrhenian Sea; Adriatic Sea; Aegean Sea; Sea of Marmara. [details]

Ecology "The species shows remarkably high densities and a patchy distribution, typical of an opportunistic species occurring in enriched and polluted environments" (Langeneck et al., 2017: 874). [details]

Etymology The species is named after Carlo Nike Bianchi, "in recognition of his important work on Mediterranean polychaetes" (Langeneck et al., 2017: 874). [details]

Habitat In brackish-water lagoons and coastal ponds (0.5-3 m depth) it occurs often associated with Zostera and Nanozostera meadows; in marine environments (3.5 to 100 m) it is typically related with anthropogenic organic enrichment, such as sewage pollution and fish farms, but it also occurs in muddy and sandy sediments and maërl beds. [details]

Type locality Calich Pond, north-west Sardinia, Italy, Sea of Sardinia, Mediterranean Sea (40.4967°, 08.2883°). [details]
