( Fig. 5 AView FIGURE 5. A)

Exogone verugera africana Hartmann-Schröder, 1974 a: 137  , figs 164–168.

Exogone (Exogone) africana  .— San Martín 2005: 143 –145, figs 90 A–I, 91 A–E; Çinar & Dagli 2012: 105 –106, fig. 3.

Material examined. AM W. 45201, MI QLD 2437.

Remarks. Specimen with brooding eggs, with natatory chaetae ( Fig. 5 AView FIGURE 5. A). San Martín (2005) includes in the diagnosis of Exogone  that mature females carry eggs ventrally, and lack capillary notochaetae (natatory chaetae), which are, in contrast, present in mature males. However, this specimen is clearly a female brooding eggs ventrally and possesses natatory chaetae in midbody segments.

Habitat. All kinds of substrates, in intertidal to shallow waters.

Distribution. Angola, Namibia, Hawaii, Japan, Australia (all states), Mediterranean (alien species).
