Questionable status. Ravara et al. (2010) found morphological differences between European specimens identified as Inermonephtys inermis  and the holotype from Florida and established a new species, Inermonephtys foretmontardoi  Ravara, Cunha & Pleijel, 2010 for the European populations. Inermonephtys inermis  is restricted to the West Atlantic. It is highly likely that Greek specimens of Inermonephtys inermis  belong to Inermonephtys foretmontardoi  , but no specimens have been re-examined yet for confirmation.
