Sphaerosyllis hystrix Claparede, 1863 

Notes

The name Sphaerosyllis hystrix  has been applied to a number of specimens worldwide which likely belong to other species. Several specimens from Greece previously identified as Sphaerosyllis hystrix  were assigned to Sphaerosyllis boeroi  Musco, Çınar & Giangrande, 2005 after re-examination ( Faulwetter et al. 2011b). It is likely that other specimens recorded under the name Sphaerosyllis hystrix  from Greece actually belong to different species. Type locality: Mediterranean (Gulf of Naples).
