Taxonomic note: Since the middle of the s. XX, E. capellinii has been considered a synonymous species of E. doriae (Edmunds & Kress, 1969, Thompson & Brown, 1984, Thompson, 1988, Picton & Morrow, 1994; Caballer, 2002) or even confused with other species of the genus such as Eubranchus cingulatus (Edmunds & Kress, 1969; Ortea, 1978; Schmekel & Portmann, 1982). However, the original description of E. capellinii (as Tergipes capellinii) and the accompanying color plate (Trinchese, 1879) are clear and illustrative enough to differentiate it from the rest of the Atlantic species of the genus. Because of this reason Caballer, Ortea & Canteras (2010), using specimens captured in Cantabria, the Algarve coast (Portugal) and the Murcian coast (Spanish Mediterranean), propose to reinstate the species as valid and performed a complete morphological and anatomical study (genitalia, radula and jaws).
