Non indigenous Branchiomma species

At least seven species of Branchiomma have been reported to date, including six in a recent list of alien polychaetes by Çinar (2013) and one more species in this study: B. coheni . Table 2 View TABLE 2 summarizes the list of all the valid species of this genus with their updated status and distribution. However, we suggest further information is desirable to confirm the status of some species, as reviewed and outlined below in alphabetical order, providing an update of available information as well as directions for future studies. In addition, we provide recommendations to accurately identify them when focusing in early detection and NIS monitoring programs.
