Questionable status. Knight-Jones et al. (2017) investigate specimens of Pseudopotamilla reniformis  from various locations in Europe, restrict the distribution of Pseudopotamilla reniformis  to cold northern waters and re-instate Pseudopotamilla saxicava  (Quatrefages 1866) for specimens from temperate and tropical waters, including the Mediterranean, noting that the description of Pseudopotamilla reniformis  by Fauvel (1927) contains figures of both Pseudopotamilla reniformis  and Pseudopotamilla saxicava  . Greek records of Pseudopotamilla reniformis  probably belong to Pseudopotamilla saxicava  .
