OTHER REPORTED NAMES: Sabellaria spinulosa alcocki Gravier, 1906  ; Sabellaria alcocki Gravier, 1906  . REMARKS: Recent analyses ( Lezzi et al. 2015) suggest that Sabellaria alcocki Gravier, 1906  , species described for the Indian Ocean and reported in the Mediterranean including the Adriatic Sea ( Amoureux 1976; Castelli et al. 2008), should not be present in the Mediterranean area. Records probably correspond to specimens of S. spinulosa  at different stages of development.
