status

 

Eunice purpurea Grube, 1866 

Notes

Reported from Greece by Arvanitidis (1994) and Kitsos (2003). Type locality: Mediterranean (Adriatic). Arvanitidis (1994) notes some differences in the individuals he examined compared to the description provided by Fauchald (1992). Fauvel (1917) regards Eunice purpurea  as junior synonym of Eunice roussaei  Quatrefages, 1866 and the species has since then been part of the confusion concerning large eunicids in the Mediterranean (see remarks under Eunice aphroditois  Pallas, 1788). Fauchald (1992) considers it a valid species by investigating material from the Adriatic and Zanol and Bettoso (2006) highlight specific differences that do not occur in Eunice roussaei  .
