They have been observed aggregating on banks of mussels that have been exposed and damaged and on injured starfish, "Acodontaster
". In turn, they are preyed upon by sea anemones and other species of starfish. It is an ecologically important species because of its consumption of benthic larvae and the control it exerts on the starfish "Acodontaster

" and "T. meridensis". Another junior synonym of "Tanystropheus" is "Procerosaurus". Two specimens were initially identified as "Procerosaurus": The first was described as "P. cruralis" by von Huene in 1902. The second was described by Antonín Jan Frič in 1878 as a species of "Iguanodon" ("Iguanodon exogirarum", later amended to "exogyrarum"), and is a highly doubtful dinosaurian-like bit of bone (possibly an internal cast of a tibia) from the Cenomanian (Late Cretaceous) of the Czech Republic. He reassigned the species to "Procerosaurus" in 1905 intending to erect it as a new genus, unaware that the genus name was already in use. George Olshevsky in 2000 substituted "Ponerosteus" for this species.
