Notes

Species complex. The taxonomy of the species is confused, with a long list of synonyms. Originally described from the Northern Adriatic but reported from worldwide locations ( Martín et al. 2003), with three different morphotypes in the Western Mediterranean. Currently, three well-described species of Haplosyllis  are known the Mediterranean: Haplosyllis spongicola  , Haplosyllis  chamaeleon Laubier, 1960 and Haplosyllis granulosa  (Lattig, San Martín & Martin, 2007). The description of Haplosyllis spongicola  by San Martín (2003) is referred in part to Haplosyllis granulosa  ( Lattig et al. 2007). In addition, a number of Haplosyllis  species have been described from the Mediterranean and the Black Sea which are currently regarded as incertae sedis due to lost type material and insufficient descriptions ( Lattig and Martín 2009). Eastern Mediterranean records should also be examined for possible occurrences of the Red Sea species Haplosyllis djiboutiensis  Gravier, 1900.
