Scoletoma fragilis (O.F. Mueller, 1776) 

Lumbriconereis fragilis  (O.F. Müller, 1776) | Lumbrineris fragilis  (O.F. Müller, 1776) | Scoletoma fragilis  (O.F. Müller, 1776)


Species complex. Frequently reported from Greece and other parts of the Mediterranean ( Castelli et al. 2008, Ayari et al. 2009, Çınar et al. 2014, Mikac 2015). Otherwise distributed in the Atlantic Ocean, Arctic Ocean and North Sea. However, molecular analyses revealed the existence of at least two putative cryptic species, one in the Atlantic and one in the Arctic Ocean ( Carr et al. 2011).
