Aonidella cirrobranchiata (Day, 1961) 

Prionospio cirrobranchiata  Day, 1961

Notes

Questionable status. In the Mediterranean only reported from Greece ( Bogdanos and Satsmadjis 1983). Commonly distributed in West Atlantic and South-West Africa. Arvanitidis (1994) regards its presence in the Mediterranean as doubtful. Day (1961) and Day (1967) include it in the subgroup of Prionospio  species with apinnate branchiae. Maciolek in her unpublished dissertation ( Maciolek Blake 1983) and Lopez-Jamar (1989) moved it to a new genus ( Aonidella  ) on the basis of other unique diagnostic characters (for more information see Maciolek 2000). Re-examination of the material would be required to investigate the possible assignment of the Greek record to a Prionospio (Minuspio)  species with apinnate branchiae.
