Sternaspis scutata Ranzani, 1817 

Notes

Sendall and Salazar-Vallejo (2013) re-instated Sternaspis thalassemoides  Otto, 1821 from the Mediterranean alongside Sternaspis scutata  , mainly based on morphological features of the fan (truncate, entire and not expanding beyond the posterolateral margins in Sternaspis thalassemoides  ; notched and expanded beyond the posterolateral margins in Sternaspis scutata  ). Specimens recorded in the past as Sternaspis scutata  could belong to either of the two species. Type locality: Mediterranean (originally Adriatic Sea, neotype from Izmir, Turkey).
