Myriochele heeri Malmgren, 1867 

Notes

Questionable status. Martín (1989) re-examined material identified as Myriochele heeri  in the Mediterranean and assigned the material and the description of Myriochele heeri  by Fauvel (1927) to Galathowenia oculata  (Zachs, 1923). Parapar (2006) revised and re-described Myriochele heeri  , as the original type series of Myriochele heeri  constituted a mixture of different and confused species. The species is probably restricted to the boreal Atlantic and Arctic regions and Mediterranean records are questionable ( Parapar 2006). Specimens identified using Fauvel's key are likely to belong to Galathowenia oculata  .
