Alitta succinea (Leuckart, 1847) 

Neanthes succinea  (Leuckart, 1847) | Nereis succinea  Leuckart, 1847

Notes

Fauvel (1923) considered Nereis lamellosa  Ehlers 1868 a synonym of Nereis succinea  but revoked this synonymy in a subsequent publication, describing the differentiating characters ( Fauvel 1936b). Later authors (e.g. Day 1967, Campoy 1982) continued to treat the species as synonymous. Thus, many reports of Alitta succinea  may actually contain specimens of Nereis lamellosa  , which in turn is probably underreported in the Mediterranean ( Arvanitidis 2000a).
