status

 

Hesiospina aurantiaca (M. Sars, 1862) 

Hesiospina aurantiaca  (M. Sars, 1862) | Hesiospina similis  (Hessle, 1925)

Notes

Frequently reported from Greece, considered cosmopolitan ( Pleijel 2004). Simboura (1996) notes morphological differences between specimens of Hesiospina similis  from the Mediterranean and from the native range (Japan). Specifically, Mediterranean material exhibits a stronger serration of the blades of the compound chaetae and neuropodial aciculae with rounded instead of tapering tips.
