Nothria conchylega (Sars, 1835) 

Nothria conchylega  (Sars, 1835) | Onuphis conchylega  Sars, 1835

Notes

Species complex. Frequently reported from Greece and other parts of the Mediterranean (e.g. Çınar 2005, Castelli et al. 2008, Ayari et al. 2009, Çınar et al. 2014, Mikac 2015). Otherwise distributed in the Arctic, Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. However, many of these records could belong to other species. Budaeva and Paxton (2013) note that morphological variations of Nothria  Malmgren, 1866 have been underestimated in earlier species descriptions, including those of Nothria conchylega  . In addition, two putative cryptic species of Nothria conchylega  were discovered in the Arctic and Pacific Ocean ( Carr et al. 2011).
