status

 

Eunice norvegica (Linnaeus, 1767) 

Notes

Questionable status. Reported from Greece by NCMR (1989). In the Mediterranean also known from the western basin (e.g. Danovaro et al. 2010, Taviani et al. 2015), Tunisia ( Ayari et al. 2009), the Italian coasts of the Ionian Sea (e.g. Tursi et al. 2004, Vertino et al. 2010) and the Adriatic ( D'Onghia et al. 2015), otherwise distributed in the North Atlantic. Often associated with deep-water corals ( Danovaro et al. 2010), which are little studied in Greece. The species has so far only been reported in grey literature and has not been found in almost three decades, therefore its presence in Greece is pending confirmation. See also notes under Eunice floridana  on the confusion regarding the species concept in early works and keys.
