Syllis cf. mayeri Musco & Giangrande, 2005 

Notes

Reported from Greece by Keklikoglou et al. (2013). Syllis mayeri  is a Caribbean species which was first reported from the Mediterranean (Lebanon) by Aguado and San Martín (2007) as Syllis cf. mayeri  . The authors compared their material to the type material and found slight differences in the length of the anterior dorsal cirri and the pharynx. They note that Syllis mayeri  and other "cosmopolitan" Syllis  species possibly constitute species complexes. The Greek material corresponds exactly to the description of Aguado and San Martín (2007) and may belong to an undescribed species.
