Eunice aphroditois (Pallas, 1788)

Notes

Questionable status. Fauvel (1923) recorded Eunice roussaei Quatrefages, 1866 in the Adriatic Sea, but the species was later synonymised with Eunice aphroditoi s by Hartman (1944). Subsequently, several records of large-sized eunicids in the Mediterranean were assigned to the latter. After the resurrection of Eunice roussaei by Fauchald (1992), many authors suggested that literature records of Eunice aphroditois in the Mediterranean actually belong to Eunice roussaei ( Parapar and Harto 2001, Zanol and Bettoso 2006, Çınar et al. 2014, Mikac 2015). Two specimens of Eunice aphroditois from the collections of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki were re-examined by the first author and identified as Eunice roussaei ( Faulwetter et al. 2013); it is likely that all Greek records belong to Eunice roussaei .
