Ampharete acutifrons (Grube, 1860) 

Notes

Questionable status. Mediterranean records of Ampharete acutifrons  in the Mediterranean are doubted by several authors (e.g. Parapar et al. 1993a, Mikac 2015) based on the species' boreal distribution. Specimens of Ampharete acutifrons  from the Adriatic were shown to belong to Ampharete lindstroemi  Hessle, 1917 ( Mikac 2015), thus Ampharete acutifron  s may actually be absent from the region. Jirkov (2001) considers Ampharete acutifrons  to probably constitute a species complex, based on observed differences between Atlantic and Pacific species.
