Bathyfauvelia affinis (Fauvel, 1914) 

Bathyfauvelia affinis  (Fauvel, 1914) | Macellicephala annae  Reyss, 1968


Reported as Macellicephala annae  by Chardy et al. (1973) from deep waters (2000-3000 m) in the Aegean and Ionian Sea, without giving a precise location. It is highly likely that the species was found in the Aegean in Greek waters, as such depths do not occur near the Turkish coast. Pettibone (1976) synonymised the two species after having examined the holotype of Macellicephala annae  and Arvanitidis (2000a), accordingly, uses the name Bathyfauvelia affinis  in his checklist. Type locality: Western Mediterranean.
