Neoleanira tetragona ( Orsted , 1845)


Neoleanira tetragona ( Orsted, 1845) 


Questionable status. Usually occurring in muddy sediments of deep-water habitats (down to 2200 m) and rarely recorded from the Mediterranean ( Barnich and Fiege 2003). The two Greek records are from shallower waters: from max. 35 m depth ( Chintiroglou 1987) and from coelenteron content of the anemone Calliactis parasitica  (Couch, 1842) collected from depths down to 80 m ( Chintiroglou and Koukouras 1991) and must therefore be considered questionable.
