Platynereis dumerilii (Audouin & Milne Edwards, 1834) 

Notes

Lobo et al. (2016) show that specimens from Portugal and Italy genetically diverge, indicating potentially more than one cryptic species in Europe (pending further corroboration through analysis of more specimens). One of the sibling species of Platynereis dumerilii  occurring near CO2 vents in Ischia, Italy, was recently shown to correspond to Platynereis massiliensis  (Moquin-Tandon, 1869) ( Valvassori et al. 2015).
