Chone filicaudata Southern, 1914 

Chone filicaudata  Southern, 1914 | Paradialychone filicaudata  (Southern, 1914)

Notes

Questionable status. Until recently, the only known species in the genus Chone  with a pygidial cirrus used to be Chone filicaudata  ; consequently all specimens possessing it were assigned to this species ( Tovar-Hernández et al. 2007). However, nowadays more species with this character are known and historic records could belong to any of these species possessing a pygidial cirrus. Chone filicaudata  is frequently reported from the Mediterranean but without accompanying descriptions or illustrations. The only available illustration by Giangrande (1992) does not correspond to the characters of the type material of Chone filicaudata  ( Tovar-Hernández et al. 2007). The species is currently believed to be restricted to the North-East Atlantic ( Tovar-Hernández et al. 2007, Wasson et al. 2017); Mediterranean specimens likely belong to Dialychone usticensis  (Giangrande, Licciano & Castriota, 2006).
