Type locality Cannes, Côte d'Azur, France, Mediterranean Sea. Specimens were collected at three different points: 1) Pointe de la Croisette (gazetteer estimate 43.534°, 07.038°), among tubes of Sabellaria alveolata (Linnaeus, 1767); 2) northern side of Île de Sainte-Margueritte (gazetteer estimate 43.523°, 07.038°), among Lithothamnion; and 3) off La Bocca (gazetteer estimate 43.534°, 06.986°), 70 m deep among calcareous stones. Apparently Saint-Joseph (1906) did not designate a specific type locality, and while Pleijel & Mackie (1993) state to have revised the holotype (no MNHN collection code provided), Solís-Weiss et al. (2004) refer the existence of at least two syntypes (MNHN POLY TYPE 205 and 987). [details]

Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet nana is a Latin noun meaning 'female dwarf', and refers presumably to the small size of the species, originally described as being 3.60-4.38 mm long and 0.48-0.66 mm wide, for 29-34 segments, and referred by Saint-Joseph (1906: 223-224) as being a "petite Phyllodoce" and a "Phyllodoce ci petite". [details]

Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet nana is a Latin noun meaning 'female dwarf', and refers presumably to the small size of the species, originally described as being 3.60-4.38 mm long and 0.48-0.66 mm wide, for 29-34 segments, and referred by Saint-Joseph (1906: 223-224) as being a "petite Phyllodoce" and a "Phyllodoce ci petite". [details]

Habitat Among tubes of Sabellaria alveolata (Linnaeus, 1767), Lithothamnion, and calcareous stones, shallow water to 70 m. [details]

Synonymy After the revision of type material Pleijel & Mackie (1993: 156, 159) suggested the synonymy of Phyllodoce nana Saint-Joseph, 1906 with Nereiphylla pusilla (Claparède, 1870). Their only doubt concerning the synonymy was related to Saint-Joseph's decription of eggs with a diameter of 400 µm in an animal 480 µm wide including cirri, while N. pusilla has eggs with a diameter of 150 µm. [details]
