Myxicola infundibulum (Montagu, 1808) 

Notes

Species complex. Myxicola infundibulum  is a taxon with a long list of synonyms and has until recently been considered cosmopolitan ( Giangrande et al. 2012). However, specimens from different parts of the world (West Atlantic, Mediterranean, Pacific Canada) show genetic and morphological differences ( Carr et al. 2011). Giangrande et al. 2012 found specimens of Myxicola  from the Gulf of Naples and Lake Faro to morphologically differ from specimens of Myxicola infundibulum  from the type locality in the North Adriatic Sea. It is therefore possible that the species constitutes a complex of cryptic species even in the Mediterranean.
