Aphelochaeta cf. monilaris (Hartman, 1960)


Aphelochaeta cf. monilaris (Hartman, 1960) 


In the Mediterranean only reported from Greece ( Simboura 1996, as Aphelochaeta cf. monilaris  ). Commonly distributed along the Pacific coast of North America. The Greek material differs from Hartman's original description mainly in the number of thoracic chaetigers (11 vs. 15 in the species described by Hartman 1960) and in the absence of eyespots (two eyespots in Hartman's material) and may belong to a different taxon ( Simboura 1996).
