Leiochrus alutaceus Ehlers, 1908


Leiochrus alutaceus Ehlers, 1908 


Questionable status. In the Mediterranean only reported from Greece ( Akoumianaki 2004). Commonly distributed in the Pacific. Worldwide, records of this genus are rare and uncertain (e.g. Hilbig and Blake 2006, Probert et al. 2009). However, as species of Leiochrides  can key out as Leiochrus  in Fauchald (1977), the presence of the former genus in Greece is possible if the key by Fauchald has been used.
