Pleurobranchida

Berthella aurantiaca (Risso, 1818)

As clarified in the bibliography (see Furfaro et others, 2020) we think that the Salento specimens, which we believe erroneously identified as belonging to this species, actually belong to Berthellina edwardsii (Vayssière, 1897).

Come chiarito in bibliografia (cfr Furfaro et altri, 2020) pensiamo che gli esemplari salentini, che riteniamo erroneamente identificati appartenere a questa specie in realtà appartengano a Berthellina edwardsii (Vayssière, 1897).
