Eunice filamentosa Grube, 1856

Eunice filamentosa Grube, 1856: 56 .— Fauchald 1992:139.— Carrera-Parra & Salazar-Vallejo 2011: 53.

Remarks. This species was reported under this name in Day & Hutchings (1979) in reference to Kott (1951) record of E. denticulata and based on the synonymization of both species by Hartman (1944). Both E. filamentosa and E. denticulata are, current, valid species ( Fauchald 1992). Eunice filamentosa was originally described from the West Indies. It appears to be restricted to the Grand Caribbean Region despite being widely reported from different places around the globe ( Carrera-Parra & Salazar-Vallejo 2011). We therefore suggest that this species does not occur in Australian waters.
