Aglaophamus pulcher (Rainer, 1991)


Aglaophamus pulcher (Rainer, 1991) 

Nephtys pulchra  Rainer, 1991


Reported from Greece by Arvanitidis (2000a) but specimens of Aglaophamus malmgreni  ( Théel, 1897) by von Marenzeller (1902) could belong to Aglaophamus pulcher  (see notes there). In the Mediterranean also known from abyssal canyons and plains in the western basin ( Ravara et al. 2010), otherwise distributed in the North East Atlantic. May have been confused in the past with Nephtys hystricis  McIntosh, 1900 and Nephtys incisa  Malmgren 1865 ( Rainer 1991) and therefore been overlooked in the area.
