Polycirrus plumosus Wollebaek, 1912 

Notes

Questionable status. In the Mediterranean reported from Greece ( Simboura 1987, Simboura 1996, Pancucci-Papadopoulou et al. 1999, Chatzigeorgiou et al. 2016) and the Adriatic ( Mikac 2015), otherwise distributed in the North Atlantic. Several Greek specimens were re-examined and found to belong to Polycirrus twisti  Potts, 1928 ( Simboura et al. 2010), a Lessepsian migrant. It is likely that Polycirrus plumosus  does not occur in Greece.
