Perinereis oliveirae (Horst, 1889)


Perinereis oliveirae (Horst, 1889) 


Reported from Greece by Koukouras et al. (1985) and Simboura (1987). In the Mediterranean also known from France ( Bellan 1964a), Spain ( Núñez 2004) and Italy ( Castelli et al. 2008), otherwise distributed along the Atlantic coasts of Europe and North Africa. Italian records are, however, considered questionable by Castelli et al. (2008) as the species is easily confused with Perinereis rullieri  Pilato, 1974.
