The Channel islands are near the type locality of Marphysa sanguinea which is the Cornwall coast. Just to remind that Hutchings & Karageorgopoulos 2003 has valuable info on M. sanguinea. The second author had at the time done a reproductive biology study of the species in the UK, but I do not know if it is published somewhere. Pat may have further info - pat.hutchings from austmus.gov.au
