Sphaerodorum gracilis (Rathke, 1843) 

Sphaerodorum flavum  Ørsted, 1843


Questionable status. Reported from Greece by Goumenaki (2005). In the Mediterranean also known from Italy ( Castelli et al. 2008), Spain ( Serrano-Samaniego 2012) and the Adriatic ( Mikac 2015). Present in the adjacent Sea of Marmara ( Çınar et al. 2014). Otherwise distributed in the North Atlantic. While it is possible that the species occurs in Greece, it has so far only been reported in grey literature; its presence is therefore preliminarily considered questionable, pending confirmation.
