Synchronous spawning is associated with spring or neap tides suggesting a correlation with tidal or lunar cycles (Howie, 1959; Bentley & Pacey, 1992). It can stay there for weeks on end, sometimes changing its position slightly in the sand. Available from: Ocean Biogeographic Information System. The commonest is the presence of an incomplete extra (twentieth) segment at the base of the tail. Dr Mary Gillham Archive Project. For example, on sandy shores near St Andrews and Dublin spawning occurred between mid October to mid November, peaking in early November, whereas at Fairlie Sans, Millport spawning occurred between Apr and May and again in autumn (Howie, 1959; Bentley & Pacey, 1992). ), Strong 3 to 6 knots (1.5-3 m/sec.
