Timarete filigera (Delle Chiaje, 1828) 

Cirriformia filigera  (Delle Chiaje, 1828) | Timarete filigera  (Delle Chiaje, 1828)


Species complex. Timarete filigera  has been recorded from worldwide locations, but many of these records probably belong to different species. Specimens from West Atlantic localities identified as Timarete filigera  were re-examined morphologically and genetically by Magalhães et al. (2014) and shown to belong to undescribed species or to species previously treated as synonyms of Timarete filigera  . Mediterranean specimens are currently considered to belong to Timarete filigera  sensu stricto, as the type locality of the species is in the Gulf of Naples.
