Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus The species B. adriaticus was divided into two subspecies almost simultaneously by Erséus (1979) and by Righi and Kanner (1979): the nominate Mediterranean form is characterized by invariably 2 penial setae per bundle, and the Caribbean B. adriaticus trisetosus (junior synonym: Phallodrilus adriaticus caraibicus) is characterized by invariably 3 such setae per bundle. The Saudi Arabian form is intermediate between these subspecies. Of the 16 bundles of penial setae investigated, 10 bundles (63%) contained 2 setae, 5 bundles (31%) 3 setae, and 1 bundle (6%) 4 setae; in three of the eight specimens one bundle consisted of 2, while the other bundle of the same specimen consisted of 3 setae. It therefore appears inappropriate to maintain the polytypic adriaticus, it must rather be treated as a single, somewhat variable taxon, which apparently is very widely distributed. It is of course possible that the complex, in fact, is a number of closely related (sibling) species. Should this be the case, the distinctions between them are not at present morphologically resoluble. [details]
