status

 

Lepidonotus squamatus (Linnaeus, 1758) 

Notes

Questionable status, species complex. At least two putative cryptic species exist in waters around Canada ( Carr et al. 2011). Reported from Greece by NCMR (1995) and Conides et al. (1999) but the species is easily confused with Lepidonotus clava  (Montagu, 1808) or Lepidonotus tenuisetosus  (Gravier, 1902) ( Barnich and Fiege 2003). Records from the Adriatic could not be confirmed ( Mikac 2015).
