Polyphysia crassa fauveli (Laubier, 1959) 

Notes

Reported from Greece by Simboura (1996) as Polyphysia crassa  ( Ørsted, 1843) but belonging in fact to the Mediterranean subspecies Polyphysia crassa fauveli  ; Polyphysia crassa  is restricted to northern Europe ( Kudenov and Blake 1978). In some unpublished datasets from Greece, the name Lipobranchus jeffreysii  (McIntosh, 1869) is used. Støp-Bowitz (1945) considers Lipobranchus jeffreysii  , the type of Lipobranchius  , to be the juvenile of Polyphysia crassa  (see also Kudenov and Blake 1978). Nevertheless, Lipobranchus jeffreysii  continues to be listed in some works as a valid species (e.g. Hartmann-Schröder 1996).
