The systematics of species assigned to the genus Prionospio Malmgren, 1867 (subgenus Minuspio Foster, 1971) are confused due to the uncertainty concerning the characteristics of Prionospio cirrifera Wirén, 1883. Examination of northern European material has demonstrated the presence of P. cirrifera and another species, at present indistinguishable from Prionospio multibranchiata Berkeley, 1927. Detailed decriptions of both species are given with a discussion of their zoogeography.
The status of related and synonymised species is examined and it is suggested that specimens of 'P. cirrifera' from all localities be reexamined. Accurate identification would be greatly aided by a rediscovery and redescription of P. multibranchiata from the type locality.
