Onuphis eremita Audouin & Milne Edwards, 1833 

Notes

Species complex. Frequently reported from Greece and other parts of the Mediterranean (e.g. Campoy 1982, Castelli et al. 2008, Ayari et al. 2009, Çınar et al. 2014, Mikac 2015) and considered cosmopolitan. However, the taxonomic history of the species includes doubtful synonymies, vague descriptions and redescriptions based on material from worldwide locations ( Arias and Paxton 2014). The latter authors redefine the diagnostic characters, designate a neotype and confine its distribution to the East Atlantic and the Western and Central Mediterranean. In addition, they re-instate and re-describe Onuphis pancerii  Claparède, 1868 from the Onuphis eremita  complex and designate a neotype from Italy. Re-examination of specimens is required to determine the status of records of Onuphis eremita  and possible other species of the complex in Greece.
