Anilocra frontalis H. Milne Edwards, 1840; Anilocra physodes (Linneaus, 1758)
The identification of Anilocra in British waters is not yet settled. Two species, Anilocra frontalis and Anilocra physodes have previously been identified, but further work is needed to confirm these determinations (see Horton & Baille 2019 for details).
Distribution and Habitat
Anilocra have so far been found around the Channel Islands and along the south coast of England.
