Ecological interactions

Native status

Non-native (questionable)


Questionable status. Reported from Greece by NCMR (1992), Simboura (1996) and Katsiaras and Simboura (2015). In the Mediterranean also known from Italy ( Gravina and Somaschini 1990), Spain ( Capaccioni-Azzati et al. 1992), Cyprus ( Çınar 2005), Turkey ( Çınar et al. 2014) and the Adriatic ( Mikac 2015). Originally described from Brazil. However, Capaccioni-Azzati and El-Haddad (2015) list some noteworthy inconsistencies amongst Mediterranean records and the original description regarding the presence of chaetae on the peristomium and the last setiger with capillaries present. Therefore, it is likely that the Mediterranean records belong to an undescribed species.
