Lysidice ninetta Audouin & Milne Edwards, 1833 

Notes

Species complex. Frequently reported from Greece. However, Iannotta et al. (2006) and Iannotta et al. (2009) investigated molecular markers and provided evidence of sibling species within the Lysidice ninetta  complex. Two morphotypes (dark and light), differentiated by colour patterns in anterior body and acicular chaetae, were identified. Although the dark type matches well the original description, it is still unresolved whether one or both morphotypes are new species or belong to previously described species.
