Paradiopatra fragosa (Ehlers, 1887)


Paradiopatra fragosa (Ehlers, 1887) 

Sarsonuphis fragosa  (Ehlers, 1887)


Questionable status. Reported twice from Greece as Sarsonuphis cf. fragosa  ( Karakassis 1991, Tselepides 1992) and once as Sarsonuphis fragosa  ( Eleftheriou and Smith 2000). No other Mediterranean records, commonly distributed in the Caribbean Sea. The species is not included in any studies of Paradiopatra  from southern Europe (e.g. Arvanitidis and Koukouras 1997, Arias and Paxton 2015b) and it is probably absent from the area. Literature records could belong to Paradiopatra calliopae  Arvanitidis & Koukouras, 1997.
