Myrianida inermis (Saint Joseph, 1887)


Myrianida inermis (Saint Joseph, 1887) 


Questionable status. Reported from Greece by Faulwetter et al. (2011a) based on a single specimen. In the Mediterranean also known from Italy ( Somaschini 1988). Nygren (2004) restricts its distribution to the North-East Atlantic and North-East Pacific. Mediterranean specimens could be misidentifications in which the trepan was overlooked. In addition, the Greek specimen was identified using the key and description by San Martín (2003) which, according to Nygren (2004), corresponds only in part to Myrianida inermis  .
