Sphaerosyllis magnidentata Perkins, 1981 

Notes

Questionable status. Reported from Greece by Koulouri et al. (2015), in the Mediterranean also known from Spain ( Tena et al. 2000), otherwise distributed in the Caribbean. The Mediterranean occurrence record leads to the inclusion of the species in the key of Mediterranean Sphaerosyllis  by Faulwetter et al. (2011b), but the rarity of records indicates that it may in fact not be present in the region. A re-examination of the specimens is required to verify its presence in Greece and the Mediterranean.
