Neoamphitrite edwardsi (Quatrefages, 1865) 

Amphitrite edwardsi  (Quatrefages, 1865) | Neoamphitrite edwardsi  (Quatrefages, 1865)


Questionable status. Reported from Greece by Karlou and Melea (1977). In the Mediterranean also known from Spain ( Tena et al. 1991), Turkey ( Çınar et al. 2014) and the Adriatic ( Mikac 2015), otherwise distributed along the Atlantic coasts of Europe. While it is possible that the species occurs in Greece, it has so far only been reported in grey literature and has not been found in the last four decades, therefore its presence in Greece is here considered questionable.
