Leodice torquata (Quatrefages, 1866) 

Eunice torquata  Quatrefages, 1866 | Leodice torquata  (Quatrefages, 1866)

Notes

The species resembles Leodice laurillardi  (Quatrefages, 1866) in a number of diagnostic characters. The latter was synonymised with Leodice torquat  a by Pruvot and Racovitza (1895); this was accepted by Fauvel (1923) and later authors. However, Fauchald (1992) resurrected Leodice laurillardi  as a valid species and Arias et al. (2015) re-described the species based on type material and new specimens from the Mediterranean. They suggest that Leodice laurillardi  could be much more widespread than previously thought but was possibly being overlooked in the Mediterranean due to the confusion with Leodice torquata  .
