Glycera alba (O.F. Mueller, 1776) 

Glycera alba  (O.F. Müller, 1776) | Glycera minuta  (Bobretzky, 1870)


Böggemann (2002) distinguishes the species from Glycera tridactyla  Schmarda, 1861, mainly on the basis of the shape of the proboscidial papillae and ailerons; although the separation was judged problematic by Worsfold (2007). Parapar and Moreira (2015) agree in separating the two species on the basis of the above two characters.
