Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDepth range Not stated, but most probably sublittoral. Ehlers (1874: v) states that the samples were collected using a trawl, and later (Ehlers, 1874: 234) he also points that the species was commonly found among the green algae brought up by the nets.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Adriatic Sea, Croatia, Kvarner (= Quarnero) Gulf, at the region of Rijeka (= Fiume).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet fiumensis refers to the type locality of the species, the region around the town of Fiume (= Rijeka), Croatia, Kvarner Gulf, Adriatic Sea.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Among green algae, probably collected at the sublittoral.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Current taxon junior synonym of species listed. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Adriatic Sea, Croatia, Kvarner Gulf, Rijeka (= Fiume) (geocoordinates not provided estimated with gazetteer to be approximately lat. 45.32º, long. 14.45º).
Ehlers (1874: 225) refers that the species was collected at Quarnero (= Kvarner Gulf), Mediterranean Sea, and that Syllis fiumensis was the most common species of Syllis observed by him during his stay in Fiume (= Rijeka). Ehlers was in Fiume from the beginning of May until the end of August 1862. Ehlers (1874: 234) also states that Syllis fiumensis was present along the whole coast of Fiume, and that the species was often found by him among the green algae brought up by the trawl, from the "Porto di Lazaretto" to Martinsica (= Martinšćica, a small natural harbour near Rijeka). The location of "Porto di Lazaretto" is not clear, and it seems to exist two possibilities. It could refer to the zone of the harbour of Rijeka near the old lazaretto building, which was not being used as a quarantine station since 1812, or it could refer to the natural harbour of Martinšćica, near Rijeka, where was located the lazaretto in functions in 1862, during the stay of Ehlers in Fiume.  [details]
