Hermodice carunculata (Pallas, 1766) 

Amphinome savignyi  Brullé, 1832 | Hermodice carunculata  (Pallas, 1766)


The identity of the circumtropical species Hermodice carunculata  has been the subject of several investigations during the last years. Yáñez-Rivera and Salazar-Vallejo (2011), based on morphological investigations of fixed and living specimens, resurrected Hermodice nigrolineata  Baird, 1868 for the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean populations of the species. Ahrens et al. (2013) found no genetic differences between Hermodice carunculata  populations of the Caribbean and the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean and placed Hermodice nigrolineata  again into synonymy with Hermodice carunculata  . The findings of Chatzigeorgiou et al. (2014) concerning the phylogenetic relationships of the eastern Mediterranean populations of Hermodice carunculata  support the results of Ahrens et al. (2013).
