status

 

Gattyana cirrhosa (Pallas, 1766) 

Notes

Questionable status. In the Mediterranean only reported from Greece ( Bogdanos and Satsmadjis 1983, Bogdanos and Diapoulis 1984, NCMR 1989), Spain ( Desbruyères et al. 1973) and Italy ( Castelli et al. 2008) otherwise known from boreal regions and cold water areas along the French and Spanish Atlantic coasts ( Dauvin et al. 2006, Núñez et al. 2012); its presence in the Mediterranean could not yet be confirmed ( Barnich and Fiege 2003). It is easily confused with Harmothoe antilopes  McIntosh, 1876, a species with similar elytral structures but different notochaetae ( Barnich and Fiege 2000a).
