Species distribution

2 to 457m, from southern Argentina to Continental Antarctica. Heterophoxus videns lives buried in soft sediments. It often occurs in dense groups.

Heterophoxus videns is a voracious predator and eats animals at the sediment surface such as settling larvae, small or young worms, other crustaceans, sponges and diatoms. It and other predatory under-surface crustaceans probably play a major role in the composition and size of polychaete populations. Its predators include Trematomus fish
