Magelona papillicornis F. Mueller, 1858 

Notes

Questionable status. Until 1977, all European magelonids with mucronate chaetae on chaetiger 9 were assigned to Magelona papillicornis  , originally described from Brazil. However, Jones (1977) re-described Magelona papillicornis  and clarified that it actually lacks this character and therefore questioned its presence in European waters. Fiege et al. (2000b) demonstrated the presence of two species bearing mucronate chaetae on chaetiger 9 in Europe; Magelona mirabilis  (Johnston, 1865) and Magelona johnstoni  Fiege, Licher & Mackie, 2000. Greek records of Magelona papillicornis  could belong to either of these, although only Magelona mirabilis  has been recorded up to now.
