|Rem.: ||According to Brylinski (2009, p.257) the Vilela's specimen from Ria de Faro-Olhao (Portugal) seems similar to Saphirella from Srtrait of Dover and not Saphirella indica. This form is founded in great abundance (exceeding 4200 ind.m3) off Boulogne-sur-Mer during the autumn season, also commonly present at Gravelines and Paluel during the summer|
