Paradoneis armata Glemarec, 1966 

Cirrophorus harpagoneus  (Storch, 1967) | Paradoneis armata  Glémarec, 1966

Notes

López et al. (1987) compared type material of Paradoneis armata  to the description of Cirrophorus harpagoneus  (the type material of which is lost). The presumably differentiating character (acicular chaetae with subdistal teeth) is present in both species, thus López et al. (1987) consider the two species synonymous. However, as the species were described from different biogeographic regions ( Paradoneis armata  : Atlantic, Paradoneis harpagoneus  : Red Sea) and the type material of Paradoneis harpagoneus  is lost, not all authors share this view and examination of material from the type locality would be needed to clarify the status of the taxa ( Langeneck 2017).
