Therochaeta flabellata (Sars in Sars, 1872)


Therochaeta flabellata (Sars in Sars, 1872) 

Pherusa flabellata  (M. Sars in G.O. Sars, 1872) | Therochaeta flabellata  (M. Sars in G.O. Sars, 1872)


Questionable status. Salazar-Vallejo (2013) restricts Therochaeta flabellata  to the North-East Atlantic Ocean and Arctic waters and assigns Mediterranean material, including the description by Fauvel (1927) to an undescribed species (informally named Therochaeta cf. flabellata  “Mediterranean”, formal description pending). The Mediterranean form differs from the original description mainly in the size of the much larger sediment particles and in the lack of fusion of the first two chaetigers.
