Phalacrophorus pictus Greeff, 1879 


Questionable status. Reported from Greece by Antoniadou and Chintiroglou (2005) from a benthic sample of hard substrates at 3-15 m depth collected via SCUBA diving. No description or further information was provided for the taxon. Iospilidae  are holopelagic and easily confused with benthic juvenile forms of other species ( Jiméz-Cueto et al. 2006). Thus the record is considered doubtful here.
