Aonides paucibranchiata was observed in both periods across the entire Belgian part of the North Sea with exception of the coastal zone. Contrary to the 1994-2001 period this species had a high distribution frequency in the 1976-1986 period. The maximum density in both periods amounted to approximately 100 ind./m2.
