Nephtys hystricis McIntosh, 1900 


The description of Nephtys hystricis  by Fauvel (1923) actually refers to Nephtys incisa  Malmgren, 1865 and vice versa ( Rainer 1990). Thus, specimens identified as Nephtys hystricis  using Fauvel's key and description probably belong to Nephtys incisa  . Both Nephtys incisa  and Nephtys hystricis  have been reported from Greece, thus they can both be considered as present, despite this confusion.
