"This Atlantic species was recorded from the Mediterranean Sea with no comments by Kazzaz & Riadi (2000) based on a previous record by Kazzaz (fide Kazzaz & Riadi, 2000) from Tetouan, a locality of the Mediterranean coast of Morocco near the Straits of Gibraltar. Based on the same record, Benhissoune et al. (2002), with no comments, listed the species in their paper. In absence of documentation, the species is here considered as a taxon excludendum [from the Mediterranean]." (Cormaci, Furnari & Alongi 2021: 274) - (27 Aug 2021) - M.D. Guiry
