Ecological interactions

Native status

Non-native (questionable)

Notes

Questionable status. Reported from Greece by Kisseleva (1983). In the Mediterranean also known from the western basin (e.g. Bellan 1959, Fredj 1974), Cyprus ( Argyrou et al. 1999) and the Adriatic ( Casellato and Stefanon 2008). Otherwise distributed in the Greater Caribbean ( Fauchald et al. 2009). Commonly occurs in coralligenous habitats ( Casellato and Stefanon 2008), which are little studied in Greece. However, no clear description based on Mediterranean material exists. Fauvel (1923), considers Leodice gunneri  (Storm, 1880) a synonym of Eunice floridana  . Day (1967) lists Eunice floridana  sensu Fauvel (1923) as a synonym of Eunice norvegica  (Linnaeus, 1767) and Fauchald (1992) considers Leodice gunneri  a synonym of the latter. Clear differentiating characters between Eunice floridana  and Eunice norvegica  can be found in Fauchald (1992) and Carrera-Parra and Salazar-Vallejo (1998) (which were, however, not published at the time the species was recorded from Greece).
