Dear list mates,

Still writing the manuscript on polychaete patterns off La Gomera Island 
(Tenerife, Spain). I have a question regarding the characteristic 
occurrence of Hyalinoecia bilineata in my study sites that may be related to 
their flexible feeding behaviour and the oligotrophic condition of the 
Canarian waters.  

Fauchald & Jumars (1979) have suggested that Hyalinoecia spp. are 
opportunists displaying omnivorous scavenging and high motility and are 
better represented in nutrient-poor, shifting sands than any other onuphid.  

Do you know of any published study where such pattern is confirmed? If so,
could you give the full reference of it?

Thank you,

Salva
