Leocrates claparedii (Costa in Claparede, 1868) 


Synonymised by Hartman (1965a) with Leocrates chinensis  Kinberg, 1866, Leocrates claparedii  was reported under the former name for several years (see also remarks in Table 1), therefore listed in inventories of non-native species in the Mediterranean (e.g. Zenetos et al. 2010). Pleijel (1998), in his revision of the Hesionidae  , considers the two species distinct. Type locality: Mediterranean (Gulf of Naples).
