Questionable status. The species has a complex taxonomic history. Most reports and taxonomic accounts are not based on the holotype, but on a re-description by Monro (1939), which was later found to be based on non-type specimens belonging to two different species ( Hartley 1984, López 2008). Aricidea (Strelzovia) belgicae  had been considered eurybathic and cosmopolitan, but is in fact considered restricted to the deep waters of the Antarctic and most reports (including those from Greece, see Suppl. material 2 for a full list) must be considered misidentifications ( López 2008).
