Aphrodita aculeata Linnaeus, 1758 


Specimens of Aphrodita aculeata  from the Adriatic and Aegean may have been confused with Aphrodita alta  Kinberg, 1865 or Aphrodita perarmata  Roule, 1898 ( Barnich and Fiege 2000b). In addition, the description of Aphrodita aculeata  by Fauvel (1923) contains elements of both Aphrodita aculeata  and Aphrodita alta  , thus specimens identified using Fauvel's key may belong to either species.
