Chloeia candida Kinberg, 1857 

Chloeia viridis  Schmarda, 1861


Reported from Greece by Arvanitidis (1994). In the Mediterranean also reported from the western basin ( Fauvel and Rullier 1959), otherwise distributed in the Caribbean and tropical Atlantic. Chloeia viridis  is the name prevailing in literature, with Chloeia candida  as a synonym (referred to synonymy by Hartman (1948), although Barroso and Paiva (2011) stress that this synonymy should be re-evaluated). The publication year of Kinberg's species is sometimes cited as 1910, but the species was in fact described in 1857 ( Kinberg 1857) and thus the name Chloeia candida  takes priority.
