Notes

Species complex. Neotype from Genoa, Italy. Simboura and Nicolaidou (2001) report Ophryotrocha puerilis  from Greece at species level, as it is reported on other parts of the Mediterranean as well ( Castelli et al. 2008, Çınar et al. 2014, Núñez et al. 2013, Mikac 2015). However, Taboada et al. (2017) provide molecular evidence of at least two cryptic species under the name Ophryotrocha puerilis  in the Mediterranean Sea.
