Distribution

Northern Europe, Arctic and north-west Pacific (Peter the Great Bay). According to Radashevsky & Pankova (2006: 249) the world-wide records of the boring 'Polydora ciliata' should be verified, since they may include Polydora calcarea.

Habitat

provided by World Register of Marine Species
Sea of Japan: intertidally and shallow subtidally boring into coralline algae, shells of barnacles and various gastropod and bivalve molluscs. Worms live inside U-shaped burrows with walls lined with fine silt. Each burrow opens to the exterior via two joined apertures forming a characteristic 8-shaped opening. Species occasionally forming aggregations in shells of the bivalves Mizuhopecten yessoensis Jay and Crassostrea gigas (Thunberg) with hundreds of worms in one shell and up to five individuals per square cm of shell surface. Northern Europe: abundant boring in both soft and hard varieties of blue shale, sandstone, calcareous algae, and shells of various gastropod and bivalve molluscs.
