Opisthodonta longocirrata (Saint-Joseph, 1887) 

Pionosyllis longocirrata  Saint Joseph, 1887


Questionable status. Reported from Greece by Xenopoulou (1987). Widely distributed throughout the Mediterranean ( Musco and Giangrande 2005). While it is possible that the species occurs in Greece, it has so far only been reported in grey literature and has not been found in over three decades, therefore its presence in Greece is here considered questionable.
