Notes

Questionable status. Species complex. Reported frequently from Greece and other parts of the Mediterranean ( Çınar 2005, Castelli et al. 2008, Mikac 2015). However, Mediterranean records probably belong to Prionospio maciolekae  Dağlı and Çınar 2011 (see remarks there and under Prionospio cirrifera  Wirén 1883). Otherwise distributed in the West Atlantic and East Pacific. Simboura (1996) describes two forms of Prionospio cf. multibranchiata  , the one with longer gills which was later re-identified as Prionospio pulchra  Imajima, 1990.
