Spio filicornis ( Mueller, 1776) 

Notes

Questionable status. Frequently reported, but its presence in the Mediterranean has been questioned by Simboura (1996). In addition, Meißner et al. (2011) redescribed the species from the type locality ( Iluilârssuk, Greenland) and concluded that traditionally used diagnostic characters are inappropriate. The same authors limit the species' distribution to Greenland and encourage the re-examination of material from other locations.
