Terebellides stroemii Sars, 1835 


Questionable status. Species complex. Terebellides stroemii  is a species complex of pseudo-cryptic species ( Parapar and Hutchings 2014). Çınar (2005) re-examined some specimens from Cyprus previously identified as Terebellides stroemii  and compared them to material collected near the type locality. He concluded that two or three different species of Terebellides  occur along the coast of Cyprus. Parapar et al. (2013) re-investigated material from the Adriatic, found Terebellides gracilis  (Malm, 1874) to be present in the area and additionally described a new species, Terebellides mediterranea  Parapar, Mikac & Fiege, 2013. Thus, specimens reported in the Mediterranean under the name Terebellides stroemii  certainly belong to different species.
