Trypanosyllis aeolis Langerhans, 1879 


Reported from Greece by Chatzigeorgiou et al. (2016) under this name, previously reported as Trypanosyllis gemmipara  Johnson, 1901 by Arvanitidis (2000a), based on works by San Martín (1984) and Campoy (1982). San Martín (2003) synonymises Trypanosyllis gemmipara  with Trypanosyllis aeolis  and also refers the two aforementioned descriptions to Trypanosyllis aeolis  . Álvarez-Campos et al. (2017) re-instate Trypanosyllis gemmipara  based on molecular analyses and assign them to the genus Trypanedenta  Imajima & Hartman 1964. Trypanedenta gemmipara  is probably restricted to the Indo-Pacific region (Alaska to Mexico, Japan, New Zealand, India) and reports from the Mediterranean belong to Trypanosyllis aeolis  ( Álvarez-Campos et al. 2017).
