Paradiopatra quadricuspis (M. Sars in G.O. Sars, 1872) 

Paradiopatra quadricuspis  (M. Sars in G.O. Sars, 1872) | Sarsonuphis quadricuspis  (M. Sars in G.O. Sars, 1872)

Notes

Questionable status. Budaeva and Fauchald (2011) doubt the presence of the species in the Mediterranean and suggest that Greek records by Arvanitidis and Koukouras (1997) may represent a new species. Their argument of a limited distribution from Norway to Iceland has been accepted also by other authors ( Mikac 2015, Arias and Paxton 2015b, but see Çınar et al. 2014). Simboura (1996) found specimens of Sarsonuphis quadricuspis  from Greece to differ from the type material but also from French material described by Bellan (1963). She considered it an undescribed species designated as Sarsonuphis  sp.; but later found it to match the description of Paradiopatra calliopae  Arvanitidis & Koukouras, 1997. Re-examination of material is required to draw conclusions about the identity of the Greek records but the species' distribution in the region is doubtful.
